Ornamental Grasses

CSU Master Gardeners
Thursday, October 26, 6pm

Wildflowers get all the love and attention but have you ever thought about adding grasses to your mountain garden? There is a plethora of wonderful native and ornamental grasses that grow and thrive at high elevation. Many are quite beautiful, adding different textures, colors and year-round interest to your garden as well as providing food and shelter for our mountain wildlife. Join us to learn a little more about some of these grasses and how you can incorporate them into your garden! Giveaways & light refreshments provided.
Following the presentation, we will be holding a seed exchange. If interested, please bring seed to share. If you have questions, contact the CCC CSU Extension Office. Please RSVP by October 24.

Leon Littlebird concert

Fundraiser for Friends of the Georgetown Library
Friday, October 27, 7pm

For their annual fundraiser, the Friends of the Georgetown Library presents Leon Joseph Littlebird for an evening of stories, music and entertainment. Leon embodies the spirit of Colorado. With roots in both pioneer and native cultures he understands the magic of the mountains and the South West. His great grandfather was one of the original settlers in Blackhawk Colorado, and his great-uncle was a classical composer and performer in Silver Plume and Georgetown.
     This connection to the rich history of Colorado comes through in Leon's music. A prolific songwriter and performer, his unique style tells tales of Colorado and the people of the west. His performances shape compelling stories into a musical show that leaves audiences asking for more.
     Leon's ancestors also include the indigenous Navajo people of northern New Mexico. Leon understands and respects the ancient tradition of Native American Flute music. Often the Native American Flute was used as a right of passage, for ceremony and for healing. The music has a long tradition of being sacred, romantic, stimulating, and peaceful.
     Leon's flute style combines ancient flute music with captivating rhythms that weave a tapestry of unforgettable sound. His flute music has vast popularity in clubs, concerts, weddings and special events. He has performed on numerous World Class stages across the country.
