Help Monitor Chaffee County’s Recreation System

Envision Chaffee County is encouraging local residents concerned about recreation growth to sign up for a new project that lets you monitor impacts to natural resources. 

The Recreation Impacts Monitoring System maps and monitors the county’s recreation system so it can be managed into the future. 

The system includes a smartphone application that allows volunteers to record and geotag on the ground impacts within the county. 

Four training sessions, where you can download the app, learn how to use it and receive information about the dispersed camping areas are scheduled. The first is this Saturday from 10 am to Noon at the Poncha Springs Town Hall.

Danny “Dan R” Ridenour has been in radio and television broadcasting for 42 years, starting as a senior in high school at KAMO in Rogers, Arkansas.

Dan attended Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas from 1978-82 (where he picked up the name Dan R after his fraternity brothers couldn’t pronounce his last name), majoring in Radio/Television. Dan lived in Jonesboro for 10 years working in radio and then was a TV weatherman for ABC affiliate KAIT Channel 8.

Television was a little boring when compared to radio, so Dan returned to hosting radio morning shows in Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma, and then eventually, Colorado.

Dan enjoys being involved in the community, having been an member of the Upper Arkansas Service Club and is currently on the board of directors for the Salida Community Center and is a member of the Chaffee County Fair Committee.
