    Karma Hour - Friends of Red Rock Canyon

    April 28th, 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm
    at Bristol Brewing Company
    1604 S Cascade Ave
    Colorado Springs, CO 80905

    Each Tuesday the Bristol Tasting Bristol Brewing Company Room will support a different local charity from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Instead of a traditional happy hour special, Bristol will donate one dollar per pint sold during the Tuesday Night Karma Hour to the evening’s guest charity. On April 28th, Friends of Red Rock Canyon will be hosted.

    Friends of Red Rock Canyon support Open Space through stewardship, education, advocacy, fundraising and volunteer projects.

    Redeem yourself every Tuesday at Bristol, with good karma and great beer. Doing good never tasted better.

    Pond Wall Rebuilding

    Work has been done at the Red Rock Canyon pond wall. The Parks department hired a mason to repair the rock with native rock from the original wall. There are drains, underground, on either side of the wall to remove water. They should be finishing up the project soon.
    Come over, take a hike, and check out the progress! See more photos here.DSC_5819
