In the Mountains, Climate Change Is Disrupting Everything, from How Water Flows to When Plants Flower - InsideClimate News

Andes, the Himalaya, the European Alps, and the U.S. Mountain West including Alaska, said Heidi Steltzer, a biologist at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and a lead author of the mountain chapter. "Shrinking glaciers and snow harm Indigenous Peoples and rural communities greatly. Concern, commitment and action on climate change should not depend on which places, species or people are impacted. Instead, they should be motivated by compassion," Steltzer said. Will Water Reliability Break Down? In Crested Butte, about 100 miles southwest of Leadville, hydrologist and physicist Rosemary Carroll studies how disruptions to the water cycle will affect local ranchers and ski areas, as well as drinking and agricultural water supplies hundreds of miles away. The IPCC assessment found that global warming will change the timing and amount of runoff, "affecting water storage and delivery infrastructure around the world," a finding backed by research focusing on the West. A 2016 study in six Western mountain ranges showed rising temperatures will shift the snow accumulation zone and runoff timing enough to have significant impacts on water cycles. And some towns in the Rockies and Sierra Nevada are at risk from dangerous flash floods as global warming brings rain, rather than snow, to some mountain regions. Carroll pointed out her living room window to a craggy ridgeline where she measures how water from melted snow trickles through rocks and meadows down to the East River, on to the Gunnison River and finally into the mighty Colorado. "The new normal is that the snowpack is melting earlier and we have earlier runoff, and that's a fact. There's going to be less water for a given snowpack," she said. Even in average snowfall years, global warming is reducing the amount of available water for irrigation and storage, she said. Her research for the University of Nevada's Desert Research Institute and the U.S. Department of Energy will help communities adapt as global warming disrupts flows from mountain streams. Around Crested Butte, the ski industry and local ranchers will feel the changes first. But addressing those impacts isn't as easy as just throwing a new report on the table. Translating science into action requires working with stakeholders from the start. "Ranchers know what's happening, they know that things are shifting, but they're afraid the policy will shift in a way that they will carry the burden of the change. Since they have most of the water, they ...

Manchester Music Garden To Feature All-Weather Instruments

Manchester Community College are to partner on special events incorporating the instruments, Rodner said. Based in Durango, Col., Freenotes Harmony Park instruments include the "Imbarimba," described on the company website as a melding of two African instruments, the marimba and kalimba; "Pagoda Bells," which look like a stack of progressively smaller, upside-down soup bowls; and the Griffin, upright chimes made of anodized aluminum that produce lingering tones. Individual sponsors have paid for all nine instruments, Rodner said, and the Rotary Club is about halfway toward its total goal of $60,000 for the garden, which also is to feature 15 benches, walking paths and a central patio. A sale of engraved bricks for the patio is to begin soon, and a fundraiser is to be held at Cheney Hall on May 6, featuring Wild Heart, A Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac tribute band. Rotary Club members had been seeking a collaborative project with the town, and the idea for the music garden was among a list of potential projects that Shanley submitted to the club last year, Rodner said. "So we presented it to our club and everyone agreed it was a homerun if we could pull it off," Rodner said. The music garden is to be installed near the new playscape, which will be to the left, as a person faces the park from Charter Oak Avenue. The park has been closed during the ongoing renovation, which includes new basketball and tennis courts and parking area. The planned re-opening is set for July, General Manager Scott Shanley said. Contributions to the Music Garden should be made out to the Manchester Rotary Club Foundation at P.O. Box 1, Manchester, CT 06045. (Hartford Courant)

Marigolds a fragrant part of this fall holiday

Green Acres gets its marigolds from Northern California plant vendors Cal Color and Kawahara, Gayton said. “Antigua, Bonanza and Durango series were some of the most popular and requested varieties this past summer. “You might still find a couple of flats available on the tables at the nursery in October,” he added. Demand for marigolds spikes at October’s end as Day of the Dead nears. The festive orange color also is appropriate to another autumn holiday, Halloween. “There used to be a man with acres and acres of marigolds (outside Sacramento),” Cobb recalled. “That’s where we bought them for our celebrations. But they don’t grow them anymore. And to plant them yourself, it takes water – and we’ve been trying to save water (in the drought). (Fresh marigolds are) a tradition that’s going to be gone soon.” As her sources for fresh marigolds disappeared, Cobb resorted to making them from orange paper. “But that’s become harder to find, too,” she said. “I used to use crepe paper, then tissue paper, but I can’t get that either. Now, I’ve got plastic flowers made in Taiwan.” For Sacramento’s El Panteón, Acosta special-orders fresh marigolds far in advance. This year, she’s been able to get them from a wholesale florist in Lodi. “They’re hard to get,” she said. “We order hundreds of dollars of marigolds, so all our altar makers know we’ll have fresh flowers. It’s definitely an effort, but wonderful. They add so much to our celebration.” El Panteón de Sacramento Celebration of Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead Where: 2020 L St., Sacramento (rain location) When: 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 29-30 Admission: Free Details: 916-446-5133, ...

Durango prepares for military funeral for Capt. Jeff Kuss

F/A-18 near Nashville, Tenn. La Plata County will grieve for one of its own Saturday as Capt. Jeff Kuss is brought home for burial. The Durango native and Blue Angels pilot died in a plane crash June 2 in Smyrna, Tennessee, while training for an airshow. In addition to his family, the Blue Angels unit and numerous Marines are expected to arrive for the occasion. While he didn’t know how many Marines will come to Durango for the service, Capt. Clay Groover of Beaufort Air Station in South Carolina, the home of the Marine Attack Squadron 312, Kuss’ former unit, said a significant number had asked for leave and were traveling on their own dime to come show respect. “It is extremely rare to find a ceremony of this magnitude for any military personnel,” said George Usinowicz about what Durango can expect. He served in the Vietnam War, and his brother was a fighter pilot. “But this group is so elite and so tight-knit, Durango will see something unique.” Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered flags lowered to half-staff on all public buildings in Colorado from sunrise to sunset Saturday in Kuss’ honor. Because Durango has never had a military funeral at this level, here’s a summary of how it will work: Kuss’ arrival Kuss will be flown to Durango in the Blue Angels C-130 Hercules, dubbed No. 6, his flight designation, on Friday...

Making the Arrangements for a World Market

This is true entry level,” Freed said. “If this was McDonald’s, these are the people who wash the floors.” Jesus Echevarria, a native of Durango, Mexico, moved to Shelton in 1974 and started picking brush part time while also working for a Christmas tree company. Early on, Echevarria was one of the only Mexicans in town. Others arrived later. The trickle of Latino workers became a flood in 1989, when a labor shortage in the Christmas greens industry led brush houses to seek workers from Eastern Washington fruit farms. Freed helped coordinate the arrival of 150 pickers. The mostly Mexican group worked through the holiday season. Many stayed on. Word-of-mouth brought others to the Mason-Kitsap area. Many, like Echevarria, have gained a better quality of life. “At first it was hard. People lived in the mountains,” Echevarria said. “They would sleep in their cars. Now all these people have their houses, cars, businesses.” Echevarria gained legal residency during a federal amnesty program. Now a U.S. citizen, he owns Disco Durango, a bar in Shelton with food, music and dancing. p... (Kitsap Sun)
