Our community is inextricably connected to the Eagle River watershed through economic, recreational, and aesthetic ties. But as the population of Colorado grows, so will the tension on water supplies and water quality due to potential for increased pollution. People are moving to Colorado in droves to gain access to our skiing, rafting, hiking, fly-fishing, and clean-air-breathing! And most of us care deeply about our watersheds, showing that concern and dedication if given the chance.
Through our free, monthly Watershed Wednesday education series, we hope to keep our community apprised of current water topics and issues. The Watershed Council’s monthly newsletter, The Current, is another great way for our supporters to keep up to date on water issues at home in Eagle County, across the state, and around the West. We hope to inspire a community of informed advocates for the waterways that figure so prominently in our everyday lives.
