Save the date for Water Education Colorado's two-day Annual River Basin Tour, exploring the lower South Platte River Basin June 17-18, 2019. Registration will open early to WEco members April 1.
Come see this hard-working prairie river up close and meet the people striving toward a water future for the local economies and habitats in Colorado’s northeastern corner.
Tour topics will include the South Platte Basin Implementation Plan progress and priorities, Republican River Compact compliance, collaborative water storage and exchanges to meet an anticipated supply gap, alternative water transfers (ATM) benefiting multiple stakeholders, agricultural economy of the Eastern Plains, energy development, water quality, partnerships for endangered species recovery, and much much more. 
We’ll visit and learn at these sites and others:

  • Tamarack State Wildlife Area
The tour will begin and end in Sterling, with the tour bus taking you from the starting point each day. We hope to see you there!
