A Carbondale springtime tradition, Dandelion Days returns to Sopris Park tomorrow, May 10. Since the Town of Carbondale decided to end its spraying of herbicides on its parks and playgrounds, Carbondale has celebrated this lowly but pretty flower every year with a festival of sustainability.

If fly fishing is a favorite activity and you treasure our Gold Medal fishing on the Frying Pan River in Basalt, tomorrow you can help out. Beginning at 8:30am in Basalt's Lions Park, you can help out with the 16th annual Frying Pan River Cleanup Day. One of the most-visited stretches of river in the country, the Frying Pan is a treasure, and it needs volunteers of all ages to pitch in. For details on getting involved, visit www.roaringfork.org/cleanup or call (970) 927-1290.
