350 Roaring Fork



350 Roaring Fork is making its presence known with petitions and letters to local governments, urging them to divest from fossil fuels. The group has also started what it hopes will become a weekly climate change protest in Carbondale.

350 Roaring Fork is hosting two rallies Friday - at GWS City Hall at noon and Carbondale Town Hall at 2 - to encourage local municipalities to divest from the fossil fuel industry. KDNK’s Amy Hadden Marsh spoke with organizer Will Hodges about the issue and why the rallys.
