AREDAY lines up conservatives

Conservatives and liberals will discuss the environment during a series of panel discussions at American Renewable Energy Day, set for Aug. 8 through 13 in Aspen and Snowmass.

ConservAmerica Executive Director Rob Sisson will talk about attempts to engage the Republican Party and other conservatives in its fight for environmental protections from the other side of the aisle.

Sisson and ConservAmerica board member Trammell S. Crow, also a Republican, will participate in an armchair conversation with AREDAY Founder Chip Comins on Aug. 10.

ConservAmerica is comprised of Republicans, conservatives and independents. Its mission is “to restore conservation and environmental stewardship as fundamental elements of the Republican Party’s vision for America.”

“We’re known for being polluted brown and Republican red, when in reality there’s a lot of Mother Earth green,” Crow said in a 2014 interview with the Dallas Morning News.

Tickets can be purchased on the registration page of the AREDAY website or through the Wheeler Box Office in Aspen at 970-920-5770. For more information, visit
