Students from Jose Barrios Elementary School recently took a field trip to the Tyrone Mine where they were able to tour the pit. Students had the opportunity to view diagrams of the mining process and how mining impacts the local economy. They also were able to help identify everyday items that they use to see if they contained copper and observed leach fields and discussed the use of radar in mine safety. To end the trip, students viewed a reclamation site and surveyed an area for plants and animal trace evidence to determine recovery of the environment. 

The Grant County Community Foundation and the Give Grandly Coalition would like to take the time to thank all the nonprofits, donors and match fund sponsors who came out and supported the Give Grandly event this past weekend. Over $216,203 was raised for 65 nonprofit organizations, one of them being The Commons: Center for Food Security and Sustainability. The Commons received $16,245 of the funds raised to help with their “Choose Your Own Pantry” program and to help provide food justice and sustainability to Grant County residents.
