The Durango area is Southwest Colorado's premier four-season destination with more than 600,000 annual visitors. Registration costs $75, which includes two full days of networking events and educational sessions, a welcome reception with drinks and appetizers, and breakfast, a hot lunch buffet and a cookie/coffee bar served daily.

In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
