CVEPA President John Armstrong Invites Community to Annual Meeting

cvepa.org

 

The Crystal Valley Environmental Protection Association, founded in 1972, sports the legacy of stopping a ski resort from being developed in Marble and more recently ending the West Divide Project, two dams holding conditional water rights that would have flooded Redstone and other parts of the valley. KDNK's Raleigh Burleigh spoke with John Armstrong, the organization’s president, about current issues of interest and upcoming opportunities for involvement. CVEPA's annual meeting, open to the public, is on August 24th at Propaganda Pies in Redstone at 5pm.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Raleigh now serves on KDNK's board of directors and as editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper, The Sopris Sun.
