Take a bike ride for a purpose

Join the Gunnison Public Lands Initiative, the Crested Butte Mountain Association, and Gunnison Trails on a free, guided mountain bike ride on the Teocalli Ridge Trail on August 1.

Ask a midwife a question in Gunnison

Have you ever wondered what a homebirth would be like? Do you know what the differences are from having a hospital birth? Do you know what homebirth means to a midwife? On Monday, August 8 at 6 p.m. there will be a Q&A night at The Local Market with our local midwife, Marlene Bergman. She will share with us what being a midwife means to her and answer any questions that you might have. This will be an informal night to make the citizens of the Gunnison Valley aware of another birthing option.
