La Plata Sustainability Dialogues

The La Plata Sustainability Dialogue series has been suspended.

The Sustainability Alliance's La Plata Sustainability Dialogues had been held on the second Thursday of every other month, January through November.  The evening meetings provided a forum for local stakeholders, experts, and the public to brainstorm about ways to achieve greater sustainability in La Plata County and the region. The meetings usually were held from 5:30 to 7:30 PM at the Durango City Council Chambers at 949 E. 2nd Ave.
