Colorado Green Now

Women in Green committee hosts inspiring speaker & What's next

“We’re sprouting,” claim those on ALCC’s Women in Green (WIG) committee. WIG continued their momentum with a second networking event in late April 

Megan Townsend, COO and Co-Founder of Altitude Arborist in Broomfield, was the guest speaker. Townsend presented a condensed version of her presentation, How to take 50 vacation days a year. Charlene Chacon, WIG committee member and residential team manager at Designscapes Colorado, Inc. shares, “Megan was very inspirational as a business owner, mom, and someone who knows what it is like to be a woman in the landscape industry. 

This event had a great turnout including several students from CSU’s Design and Contracting program. Event sponsors Ewing Irrigation &Landscape Supply and Designscapes Colorado, not only sponsored but also were represented by women in attendance
