2021 Wild Edible Feast
The 2021 Wild Edible Feast was a great success. If you missed it we hope to see you next year. Details for next year’s event will be posted on this page when they are known. This year’s event would not have been possible without the hard work of the Wild Edible Feast committee chaired by Board Vice-President, Rachel Heltzel, and her volunteer team. In addition, staff put in lots of hours to ensure it’s was a success.
This event was successful because of this year’s sponsors. The Presenting Sponsor was Yampa Valley Bank. Gold Sponsors were A. Scott Colby, CPA, Central Park Management/Steamboat Storage, and Sleeping Giant Financial Services. Steamboat Whiskey Company was this year’s Drink Sponsor.
THANK YOU TO OUR INCREDIBLE EVENT SPONSORS!
