Las Animas, Colorado was the site for a day-long regional workshop on agritourism on Friday, April 17. The workshop was one of several agritourism workshops offered statewide. It was sponsored by the Colorado Tourism Office and included a lunchtime tour of Boggsville to learn more about the National Treasure designation and the strategic planning process that is currently underway.
Participants learned more about ideas shared in the initial master plan for the site completed in 1990 and brainstormed agritourism possibilities for the future of the site. As noted in an article in the Bent County Democrat, Boggsville includes over a hundred acres of land along with water rights that are not currently being used.
The discussions at this agritourism workshop will help to inform a planning workshop at Boggsville scheduled for this fall.
