Advocates for our rivers and streams

Success Award 2013

ERWC is the 2013 Vail Valley Partnership 11th Annual Success Award Small Nonprofit of the Year!

The Eagle River Watershed Council believes that our rivers and streams are the life-blood of our valley. Their preservation and restoration improves our economy, our culture, and our quality of life.

ERWC advocates for our rivers through educational programs, special events, restoration projects, monitoring, research, and community volunteer projects.

We encourage you to explore our website and learn more about our organization. Visit our Facebook page to learn about upcoming events and get the latest news, or check out the publications page to find a repository of important river studies and research.

If you would like to help us achieve our goals, we encourage you to sign up to volunteer and/or make a charitable donation. We hope to see you down at the river soon!
