Forest Service weighs options for Avalanche Creek mine, neighbors voice concerns

Today, we begin an ongoing cooperative reporting project with our sister station, Aspen Public Radio. The project will focus on environmental issues.  Yesterday, Forest Service officials met with community members at the site of a proposed gypsum mine near Avalanche Creek. In the first of our cooperative reports, KDNK reporter Ed Williams has more on what the proposed mine could mean for local residents. You can read the environmental report and add your public comment here.
