We’ve Gone Virtual!

For the coming weeks, as we continue to practice social distancing due to COVID-19, the Watershed Council will release river-related activities to do at home or on the river. These will be a wide variety of topics, from macroinvertebrate studies to writing in nature. You can view our YouTube channel here, and each week’s curriculum will be posted below with a link to the specific video. This is a tough time for everyone in our watershed right now, but remember: the rivers are here for us.

Success Award 2013

The Watershed Council was the 2013 Vail Valley Partnership Small Nonprofit of the Year!

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.

The Watershed Council 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. If you would like to help us achieve our goals, we encourage you to sign up to volunteer and/or consider supporting us financially.

We hope to see you down at the river soon!
