2250 w. 3rd ave
Durango CO

I love getting mail and will write back!
so here is an update. since being here we have had a lot of training and working in the area getting use to the air (Durango is 6,500 ft above sea level) and lots of fun. this past week was the first week of leading crews. i am currently the leader of a community crew made up of 10 middle school students. we are building a garden and learning all about water conservation. the animas river runs right through town here so we get to do lots of hands on stuff. we also get to bike all over town as a little gang looking for plants and exploring the river. the next two days we are going up to Silverton CO to do a project up there. its been a lot of fun even though getting kids ages 10-14 to work is NOT easy! i love this town, its gt lots of outdoorsy people the mtns are so close and tons of outdoor activites to do. we can walk to town from our house or take the free trolly. i bike to work every day, and its nice to feel like a local in a toresty town. its small enough that i se people i know already. (in fact on of my participants is sitting to my left with her parents.) over all i am very happy and am excited to see where the summer will lead. ill try to update more! thanks for reading!
