Defend the Colorado River

The Colorado River and its tributaries like the Fraser River are essential for the health of local communities that depend on them. Not only do they provide clean water for drinking and agriculture, they are also the foundation of the regions tourism industry providing world class opportunities for fly fishing and boating.

But soon, 80% of the Colorado’s water could be diverted from its headwaters to the sprawling cities and suburbs of the Front Range. Only a trickle would be left for fish, wildlife, recreation and the small headwaters communities.

We need your help to make sure that the needs of the Colorado River are met before any more water is taken.
