River Management Workshop

Workshop for White River riparian landowners and managers to learn about local, state, and federal resources available for river and riparian restoration. The first half of the day will focus on local river property management challenges and best management practices to alleviate them. There will be a session on funding opportunities for private landowners of riparian corridors. Then, we’ll have updates on White River planning and research efforts from local stakeholders over lunch, which will be provided to registrants.

Colorado River Cleanup

SATURDAY, August 4, 2018. 

Learn more here.

  • Collect and transport trash to a takeout on three different stretches of the Colorado River. In the past the River Cleanup has removed tires, car parts, pool toys, a hot tub, bottles, clothing, lots of plastic bags, and all kinds of trash. What will you find this year?

Colorado Riverfest

The first annual Colorado Riverfest provides an excellent opportunity for the community to come out and celebrate the amazing benefits of the Colorado River and Gunnison River corridors to the Grand Valley and all of Western Colorado.  It's much more than a music festival. Join in for the group bike ride along the Riverfront Trail, try doing yoga on a paddleboard, or participate in the rubber duck race.
