STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Check out these local events happening this weekend.
An exclusive Bud Watch Party presenting ‘Public Trust’
Anytime through Aug. 4, virtual
Bud Werner Memorial Library’s ongoing virtual watch parties continue with the 2020 Audience Award Winner from Mountainfilm. The library presents an exclusive opportunity to screen “Public Trust” at home, available now through Tuesday. Part love letter, part political exposé, “Public Trust” investigates how we arrived at this precarious moment through three heated conflicts — a national monument in the Utah desert, a proposed mine in the Boundary Waters and oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge — and makes a case for their continued protection. To access the film for free, register at steamboatlibrary.org/events/public-trust.
Yampa Headwaters Fishing Fundraiser
Saturday to Aug. 28, Yampa River
This year marks the inaugural Yampa Headwaters Fishing Fundraiser, running from Saturday to Aug. 28. The fishing challenge will have participants catching a fish in a variety of waters across the headwaters of the Yampa River. Once a fish is caught, simply take a fishing-related image in that location and send it to Friends of the Yampa verifying the catch in one of the river’s tributaries. Winners will be announced Aug. 29. For an added challenge, the challenges will be treated like a Poker Run, when each challenge is fulfilled, the participant will be dealt one random playing card. Registration closes on Aug. 16.
Music On The Green
10 a.m. Friday, Yampa River Botanic Park, 1000 Pamela Lane, Steamboat Springs
This free concert series is held every other Friday morning. This week’s performers are Randy Kelley and Jon Gibbs. Kelley and Gibbs are longtime locals that play a mix of classic rock songs. The two met at a Jam night in 1994, played together in Greg Scott’s Smokehouse band in 1998 and, eventually, the Worried Men in 2001 at the Old Town Pub. Registration for the event is required. Get one ticket for a space that fits up to four people in a household. Visit stringsmusicfestival.com for more reservations and more information.
