Accompany the Crested Butte Land Trust to learn about Irwin’s spectacular blooms, booms, and busts! Beginning at the Irwin Townsite, we will discuss the area’s transformative history and how it went from being pristine wilderness, to a bustling coal mining town, to its present landscape inhabited by only the burliest locals and conserved by the Crested Butte Land Trust. The tour will finish with a walk around Lake Irwin where we will examine the hidden blooms along its eastern shore.
