Events Calendar for the Roaring Fork Campus
Community invited to Annual Veterinary Technology Tour and Open House Oct. 23
Colorado Mountain College’s Veterinary Technology Club invites the community to tour the program’s 220-acre center and teaching hospital at Spring Valley on Sunday, Oct. 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The tour coincides with National Veterinary Technician Week. The comprehensive tour is free and open to anyone who is interested in veterinary technology or to those individuals and families who just want to visit the facility. There will also be a silent auction along with burgers and snacks by donation.
In addition to the lab, small animal hospital and equine barn, the veterinary technology program houses a variety of large animals including horses, cattle, alpacas, goats, sheep, chickens and ducks and even a golden eagle. Small animals include rodents, snakes, birds, ferrets and chinchillas.
Visitors are asked to leave their own pets at home as USDA regulates that there be no unauthorized animals on the premises or in cars.
The CMC veterinary technology center and teaching hospital are located at 3000 County Rd. 114 (across from the main Spring Valley campus, past Colorado Animal Rescue).
