As an alternative to uranium, Telluride residents repeatedly suggested that Nucla and Naturita capitalize on the organic local food movement and return to their farming roots to provide Telluride and surrounding areas with produce, Cooper said. Naturita is a small town the sits nestled between some of the largest outdoor recreation areas (Telluride and Moab, UT) in Southwest Colorado. Naturita’s name is derived from Spanish meaning “little nature.” What began as a vibrant ranching community along the San Miguel River, Naturita later became a supply center for nearby mines during the mining boom in Colorado. Founded in 1881 Naturita was once the epicenter for uranium mining, but now boasts some of the best year-round outdoor activities you can find in the U.S. and is a great place to start your outdoor adventures.

In 1893, a financial crisis devastated thousands of companies and caused the unemployment rate to spike above 10% for several years. Workers lost their homes and families went hungry. According to one history of the town, a group of Denver families who had become homeless and who were “united in their wish to escape tyrannical landlords” provided the impetus. In 1894, a group of 10 idealists in Denver formed the Colorado Co-Operative Company, with the goal of moving into the wilderness to create a new community – a place “where equality and service rather than greed and competition should be the basis”. But progress on building a larger museum is slow and after years of effort, Thompson said that Nucla and Naturita still feel like an afterthought to the broader world, their culture and history less of a priority. “We really are a lower class people. I don’t know how to say that in a nice way,” she said. Naturita Community Library –While some may not think of a library as an attraction, this highly-awarded library is the exception.
