The San Juan String band will perform free concerts at the Junction Creek Campground June 10 and at the House Creek Campground June 12. Shows start at 7 p.m.
The group is made up of San Juan National Forest personnel who have combined their passion for the environment with their love of music.
Members include hydrologist Joni Vanderbilt (mandolin/vocals), forest volunteer Carol Calkin (fiddle/vocals), forester Laurie Swisher (guitar/vocals), and forest volunteer Joan Green (bass/songwriter).
At the concerts, a San Juan Mountains Association ambassador will be present to discuss the role of fire in the forests and answer questions about how this powerful force shapes the mountain ecosystem.
