The magic five

By James Dziezynski
I’ll be the first to admit it’s easy to let a few pounds sneak on over the winter. The opportunity to feast without (immediate) remorse around the holidays doesn’t help. It’s not until we try that first real hike or bike ride of the spring that it becomes obvious we’re a little off our game.

Sustaining Colorado’s forests

By Bob Berwyn
Colorado’s vast stands of lodgepole pines are part of one of the world’s great mountain forest belts, stretching nearly unbroken from Canada to Mexico. The forests first grew during an opportune period in Earth’s geological history: Receding ice sheets tilled the Rocky Mountains and provided moisture as the climate warmed after the last ice age.

Making it rain

By Mallane Dressel
It’s a practice that was used for thousands of years, but with the development of sewage systems and chemical fertilizer, the practice of recycling urine and using it as fertilizer went by the way side. Recently, this old practice gained new momentum in the U.

National parks push for sustainable food services

By Bob Berwyn
If your spring or summer travel plans this year include a national park visit, be sure to check out the healthier food options that are showing up in cafeterias and restaurants at our public lands crown jewels — and if you find some, be sure to give the chef and the park a shout-out to help encourage the transition to more sustainable eating habits.
