River Rendezvous

May Selby

It's been a successful summer for the Roaring Fork Conservancy (RFC) with their 19th annual River Rendezvous benefit on July 11 and the ribbon cutting for their new River Center in Basalt on Aug. 10. Since 1996, the RFC has inspired people to explore, value and protect the Roaring Fork Watershed, bringing the community together to protect our rivers and focusing on keeping water in local streams, monitoring water quality and preserving riparian habitat.

This year's River Rendezvous had its highest attendance to date with more than 300 guests gathering along the Fryingpan River at the scenic Dallenbach Ranch. The benefit generated approximately $400,000 through ticket sales and private tables, silent and live auctions, the wine auction and paddle raise. In light of the many resources required to combat the Lake Christine Fire, the conservancy also earmarked a significant amount of funds for the Basalt fire and police departments, thanking them for saving Basalt and its environs through their tireless efforts.
