Thirty percent of gross proceeds from the sale of books and calendars will be donated by John to the Eagle Valley Land Trust for its ongoing conservation work in Eagle County.To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO), Fielder recently published two new books – a guide book, “Guide to Colorado’s Great Outdoors: Lottery-Funded Parks, Trails, Wildlife Areas & Open Spaces,” and a picture book, “Colorado’s Great Outdoors: Celebrating 20 Years of Lottery-Funded Lands,” depicting many of the places invested in by GOCO with lottery funds.Admission to this event is free.
