The mission of the High Country Conservation Center is to promote practical solutions for waste reduction and resource conservation in our mountain community. Our current focus areas include waste reduction, energy efficiency and clean energy, water conservation, and sustainable food production. Just a few of our programs include Composting in the Schools, home energy audits and ratings, community gardens, and sustainable business programs.
In the late 1970s, Tim McClure struggled to convince the County Government that it should embrace and support recycling. Today, we have finally reached that point, and we are proud of our successes. We think Tim would be proud, too.
