Frisco BBQ Challenge

June 17th & 18th

The High Country Conservation Center is proud to partner with the Town of Frisco for their Colorado BBQ Challenge as a zero waste event. This festival proves that you can eat great BBQ, have fun AND care for our beautiful mountain environment all at the same time!

Volunteers are the backbone to making this zero waste event a success by helping to educate festival-goers on what is recyclable and what is not. Volunteers receive an event t-shirt, food and drink tickets, and some good karma.

**Late shift volunteers will receive an HC3 schwag bag**

Become a Zero Waste Ambassador

Are you interested in conservation, reducing waste, and making a difference in your community? If so, we would love to talk with you!

Zero Waste Ambassadors are in-the-know recycling experts who share their knowledge with family, friends, and neighbors. They participate in quarterly training, help educate the public, and advocate for sustainability. As an ambassador, you will be a representative of HC3’s mission to promote practical solutions for waste reduction and resource conservation in Summit County! You’ll get first dibs on our most-fun recycling projects and you’ll help our community become leaders in zero waste. It’s a small time commitment and it’s an easy way to do what you do best – care!
