VAIL — The Town of Vail will sponsor another installment of its Lunch with the Locals series June 21 at noon at the Lionshead Welcome Center. Attendees will enjoy a free lunch while listening to a presentation from Kendall Bakich of Colorado Parks and Wildlife as well as Matt Grove of U.S. Forest Service. Bakich and Grove will talk about the groundbreaking DNA research they are doing that is redefining the way native cutthroat trout are classified in Colorado.

Experts from Walking Mountains Science Center, the Eagle River Watershed Council and the town of Vail will also be on hand to answer questions about what residents can do to help Restore the Gore. There will also be native seed mixes, stickers and informational brochures given away to attendees.
