The Coalition specifically champions projects that support healthy eating and active living, encouraging and supporting community collaboration to achieve the greatest impact possible.
OUR VISION: By 2020, Eagle County will be a community that promotes and fosters a healthy environment for all.
OUR MISSION: The Coalition facilitates and empowers the community into action for lifelong wellness through healthy eating and active living.
The Coalition meets quarterly at locations throughout the Eagle River Valley. Meetings consist of organizational networking, project prioritization, community and project updates, and presentations on healthy eating and active living related topics. Coalition projects are implemented by work groups, and a Steering Committee provides overall guidance. The Coalition is coordinated by Eagle County Public Health and Environment staff. Individuals and organizations are welcome to join.
