Farmers Market Booth

La Plata Open Space Conservancy hosts an educational booth at the Durango Farmers Market each summer, making itself available to its community to learn about land conservation.

Nestled among farmers and ranchers who produce local food – some on conservation easement properties – LPOSC sets up on Saturday mornings to answer questions and help local community members connect with what land and water conservation means to protecting our local food sources and quality of life.


Annual Appreciation Picnic

Each year, Friends of Open Space gather for a family picnic and to show appreciation for contributions made in conserving cherished lands in our community.

Friends of Open Space enjoyed potluck dining at Zink Pond.

Fun and casual, LPOSC’s annual picnic brings conservation easement landowners and community members together to simply enjoy each other’s company. LPOSC also takes this opportunity to award its volunteer and stewardship of the year recipients.

Families filled boxes of fresh, heirloom potatoes to take home and enjoy after the picnic.

Picnic goers had the pleasure and hands-on experience of picking heirloom potatoes to take home with them.
