o     Creating an institution that is more inclusive of and collaborative with our growing Spanish-speaking population

The Community

Garfield County, Colorado is a jewel within the Rocky Mountains. The Roaring Fork River winds its way through Carbondale until it meets the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs. From there, the Colorado River meanders along the I-70 corridor, from the world-famous Glenwood Hot Springs Resort to the beautiful alpine vistas of Parachute, and beyond.

In Garfield County you'll have ample outdoor activities to experience including skiing at nearby resorts (Sunlight, Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge and more); fishing, rafting, hiking, biking, camping, rock climbing, and the list goes on! This is home to vast wilderness areas and popular hiking trails like Hanging Lake, a designated National Natural Landmark.

Visit the eclectic town of Carbondale where you can try out local breweries and explore art exhibits, or head west to visit Colorado's wine country in Palisade or the Colorado National Monument.

You can access several regional airports (Eagle, Grand Junction, or Montrose) within an hour or two, or utilize Denver International Airport which is roughly 200 miles east.

It's all right here waiting for you!
