Planning and Implementing at a Watershed Scale

The physical connection between tributaries and larger streams and rivers, between surface and ground water, and between wetlands and all of the water sources, warrants the need to assess, plan and implement activities at the watershed level. 

 

“It has been inspiring to be surrounded by others willing to give themselves purely to protect and improve the Colorado River Watershed. ”

— Dan Ben-Horin, MCWC Americoprs Environmental Steward

 
 

The Middle Colorado River Watershed includes the Colorado River and all of its tributaries (excluding the Roaring Fork River) from the Garfield/Eagle County line downstream to the eastern end of DeBeque Canyon. Major tributaries include Roan, Parachute, Rifle, Elk, Canyon, No Name, Grizzly, South Canyon, Divide, Mamm, and Battlement Creeks.
