Christmas Trees for Conservation Lot
12:00pm / DSNGR Parking Lot
Need a Christmas Tree? Choose between our locally harvested white firs (harvested by a team of staff volunteers from the San Juan National Forest) or sustainably farmed Wisconsin balsam firs.    Your purchase will help improve forest health, support San Juan Mountain Association's stewardship and conservation education!    Wait...you might be thinking...is it a good thing to cut down fresh trees from our public lands?? Well, Yes! Thinning white fir trees improves forest health by reducing the risk of catastrophic wildfire. While some fire is very helpful and necessary for the forest, young white fir can act as "ladder fuel" which means they allow fire to climb from the underbrush to the crowns of the tallest trees. Crown fires can spread more quickly and are harder to control.
Beverage Tastings
5:00pm / Animas Chocolate & Coffee Co.
Learn more about what we're crafting AND sample our incredible chocolate or beverages at our in-cafe tastings!    Join us every other Wednesday at 5:00 pm for a free, educational beverage tasting. These tastings are in-house trainings to educate our staff about our offerings and we love to have the public join us!   Beverage tastings may be coffee or espresso based, or might include alcohol such as spirits or wine; it all depends on what our staff is learning about that week!   Each week will be something different, whether we're tasting the difference between a cappuccino (or as we call it, The Claim Jumper) and a Harlot (otherwise known as a latte), or sampling a new cocktail we're considering for our cocktail & chocolate pairing menu.   No ticket or RSVP is necessary, simply join us in the cafe to sit in, enjoy some chocolate, and learn something new! Plus, don't forget: on the Wednesdays we aren't doing beverage tastings, we'll be doing chocolate tastings! Join us each Wednesday at 5:00 for an in-cafe tasting!
