Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this calendar listed wrong information about an egg hunt in Granby on Saturday, April 19. To compile information for our community calendars, the Sky-Hi News searches area chamber and tourism websites. Unfortunately, the Sky-Hi did not catch a mistake listed on one of those websites. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused any would-be egg hunters in the Granby area. Another listing had the time wrong for the Grand Lake egg hunt, which has since been corrected.

Did you know that if you own property in the Rocky Mountain region, chances are your ownership stops just under the top layer of dust?

Grand Beginnings works to leverage partnerships and resources to ensure quality early childhood services …
BRECKENRIDGE — Innovation and growth are the major takeaways from the 39th Mountain Travel Symposium Breckenridge this week, April 9-16 — and industry professionals came away with the understanding that one cannot happen without the other. Innovation has been at the forefront of the symposium for years. Attendees remember when GoPro cameras were featured, or the time when new mobile applications that track vertical feet were introduced. Over the last week in Breckenridge, the industry saw a few new items such as a sneak preview of Google Glass, but the innovation centered mostly around products and ideas not yet developed. …
GRANBY — Colorado Parks and Wildlife held two “State of the Fish” meetings recently, in Granby on March 13, and in Silverthorne on March 18. The purpose of these annual meetings is to gain input and comments on fishery management options in certain local waters.

Ewert encouraged the public to ask questions and offer suggestions about the management of these fisheries, hopefully leading to better interaction between the agency and local sportsmen. Local anglers took …
