Tomorrow night’s Golden Beer Talk will feature Darren Beck, a Professional Hydrologist and Director of Water Resources for the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program (PRRIP).  This month’s featured brewery is Cannonball Creek.  The talk will start at 6:30, and if you want to be sure of a table, plan to arrive earlier.  As always, the event will be held at Windy Saddle Cafe, 1110 Washington Avenue (under the Welcome arch).  There is no cover charge, and everyone is welcome.

Our Precious Platte River: Endangered Species Recovery and Habitat Restoration

Since 1997, a cooperative effort known as the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program (PRRIP) has worked to improve management of the Platte River for the health of the ecosystem and the people who depend upon it—including residents of the greater Denver metro area. At the helm of this effort, Darren Beck leads this endangered species recovery and habitat restoration project, which is based on a unique partnership between the states of Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska, as well as the federal Department of Interior. The PRRIP is focused on increasing stream flows and supporting the endangered whooping crane, the threatened piping plover, interior least tern and pallid sturgeon.

Golden Beer Talks is a homegrown endeavor organized by a few local citizens passionate about nurturing community connections, supporting local businesses, and learning a little something new now and then.
