City Market Donates Money to PK8!

Link your City Market or King Soopers value card to Paonia K-8 School.

Each quarter City Market distributes $100,000 among participating organizations (based on spending percentages of enrolled customers).

Help our school earn a bigger slice of that pie by selecting Paonia Elementary School to earn dollars on your everyday purchases. (The funds will benefit all grades at Paonia K-8; the City Market company simply still has our name in as Paonia Elementary School.)

After logging into City Market's page, it just took me less than a minute to link my card to PES! Enroll online at: https://www.citymarket.com/topic/city-market-community-rewards

The Nature Connection will be sponsoring a couple family events over the next 3 weeks. We'd love to see you out there on the trails!

1) May 7th Gear Swap and Trail Race @ Hotchkiss. This event features running and biking races for the whole family on the new family-friendly trails surrounding North Fork High School. Events include: Adult, Youth and Kids biking and trail running (1k, 5k and 10k.) Proceeds from the race will benefit high schoolers working on trails across the county. Check out this video to see their work! We will provide bikes for anyone wanting to borrow a bike for the race.

Come for the race, stay for the swap! We will be selling used and new outdoor gear including bikes, SUPs and more! The NEW Nature Connection Climbing Wall will also make its debut. Read more about the event here.

2) April 30th and May 14th The City of Delta is hosting two bike races for the whole family. The first is on April 30th at Crossroad Park (NF HS.) The second, on May 14th is at Confluence Park in Delta. Start time for both races is 9am. Prizes will be awarded in various categories. Bike lending will also be available for racers (and non-racers) at the event. Bring family, neighbors, friends and try out some bikes on the pump track?
