FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DENVER, Sept. 24, 2014 – The Colorado Lottery will award a 2014 Starburst Award to the Town of Hot Sulphur Springs for using Lottery funds to enhance the pedestrian bridge in Pioneer Park. Recent improvements to the bridge were made using Lottery-funded grants; $25,000 from Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO), and $9,000 from the Conservation Trust Fund.
The award will be presented at the town meeting this Thursday, September 25 at 6:30 pm.
Grants for the pedestrian bridge provided an adjacent picnic area, information kiosks, and landscaping. Pioneer Park is located on about 50 acres of land on the north bank of the Colorado River. The bridge project has been ongoing since 2002 when residents began working to stabilize the river bank, relocate campsites, close areas to vehicle traffic and establish fishing access. The new pedestrian bridge, which will be completed this fall, is used daily by local residents and visitors to fish or view wildlife, while others simply enjoy the view from the bridge including the mile-long riverside glade of cottonwood trees and willows.
Several environmental education programs have been conducted in the area this year. Celebrating National Conservation Week in June, a consortium from the Headwaters Trails Alliance, Trout Unlimited, Colorado Headwaters Land Trust, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife conducted an environmental awareness program for the public at the new picnic facilities. The Grand County Wilderness Group hosted a nature walk for kids at the pedestrian bridge to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.
The Colorado Lottery Starburst Community Awards recognize excellence in the use of Lottery proceeds in community projects implemented to enhance a community’s environment. In Fiscal Year 2014 alone, the Lottery distributed $130.1 million in proceeds. Since its creation 31 years ago, the Lottery has returned more than $2.7 billion back into the state of Colorado.
Lottery proceeds are distributed to three primary beneficiaries: GOCO, Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado Parks and Wildlife. These organizations then provide grants and direct funding for parks, recreation, open space acquisition, trails, and wildlife and conservation education.
