Leave No Trace Visits RockyGrass

RockyGrass is held at the Planet Bluegrass Ranch in Lyons, Colorado - located along the wooded banks of the beautiful St. Vrain River. The historic quarry town of Lyons is just 15 miles north of Boulder in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The town is known for its antique stores, restaurants, artists, and musicians. A day at RockyGrass starts with a campground breakfast or a quick walk to downtown Lyons to relax at one of the fine coffee shops. Whether walking the campgrounds or Main Street in Lyons, live bluegrass music fills the air. Soon the sound of bagpipes echoes off the canyon walls, signaling the opening of the festival grounds and the morning tarp rush.

If you are lucky enough to have scored a pass to this sold out festival, come by the Leave No Trace booth and say hi to the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers. Both Team East and Team West will be on site spreading the word of Leave No Trace. To extend the spirit of sustainable festivation into the campgrounds, Planet Bluegrass is again running How Green is your Grass? This contest encourages all of us to raise the bar for sustainable camping by honoring campsites that excel in achieving the highest levels of the Leave No Trace philosophy. Visit the Leave No Trace booth for more information or to sign up!
