Party for the Planet: Pandemic Home Edition
The High Country Conservation Center invites you to Party for the Planet, Pandemic Home Edition on Friday, March 5.
While we can’t host an in-person event in 2021, the celebration must go on!
On Friday, March 5, HC3 will showcase a special Party for the Planet video announcing Green Scene Award winners, highlighting HC3’s accomplishments and featuring event sponsors. Craft brews will remain central to the party, so expect some tasty drafts from Summit County brewers.
An online silent auction will be hosted the week of March 1 – March 5.
Proceeds from Party for the Planet Benefit ensure the success of all of HC3’s 2021 programs.
Make a Green Scene Award Nomination
High Country Conservation Center hosts the Annual Green Scene Awards. These awards honor individuals and businesses who strive to create awareness and cultivate solutions for a greener Summit County. Green Scene awardees are examples of real-world environmental champions right here in our own community.

Party for the Planet is a beer tasting event with live music and one of the best silent auctions in Summit County. Several local brewers will sample their wares and we’ll have wine thanks to Antler’s Liquor & Wine Cellar. Admission includes unlimited beer or wine sampling, a collectible glass, light dinner, and the Green Scene Awards highlighting local sustainability champions. It’s a fun night to catch up with friends and support local climate action. Come dressed in your jeans or style it up with some mountain finery.

Why the new name?
Party for the Planet is held in honor of HC3’s founder, Tim McClure. Not only did Tim start Summit’s first recycling program in 1976, he was a pioneer whose conservation ethic still exists today.
HC3 will honor Tim’s legacy with a new individual achievement award. And, the new event name – Party for the Planet – celebrates HC3’s work in climate action, water conservation and more. We have a number of volunteer opportunities at the event. See sign up button below.
We hope you’ll join us on Friday, March 6 to party for our planet.
