Frisco, Colo. (PRWEB) August 17, 2009
There's never a dull moment in the Town of Frisco and the second annual BeetleFest--a festival to ward off the evil pine beetle--on Sept. 12, 2009 is no exception. The fun-filled, educational event will shed light on mountain pine beetles' impact on the Rocky Mountain forest. All proceeds will go to the Friends of the Dillon Ranger District to support the nonprofit organization's forest fire mitigation and restoration efforts.
The family-friendly activities taking place at the 2009 BeetleFest include:
"Since the beetle epidemic continues to threaten Colorado forests, The Town of Frisco felt it important to continue our efforts towards educating the public about the beetle's destruction of lodgepole pines," said Tim Bock, Town of Frisco marketing and communication director. "Experts estimate the pine beetle infestation will claim nearly 90 percent of Colorado's pines, so we're committed to helping with reforestation efforts by hosting BeetleFest to benefit Friends of the Dillon Ranger District."
Just a friendly reminder, please refrain from bringing outside alcohol. For more information about the Town of Frisco or BeetleFest, visit http://www.townoffrisco.com. For press inquires, contact Abby Lurie (303) 394-2366 or (303) 877-0738.
