"This highly popular event expands cooperation and collaboration throughout our state for natural resource conservation, protection, and enhancement by informing citizen groups, agencies, consultants, and legislators about current issues and through networking opportunities.

In 2018, our conference will focus on The Color of Water: Exploring the Spectrum. Our theme this year intends to tap into the creativity of our community and investigate how diverse watershed interests interact. Water touches us all from forests to farms. We’ve branched out this year to delve into water for environment, agriculture, recreation, mining, energy, forest health, city water, rural water, source water, recycled and reuse water."

Free Movie Screening - The Great Divide

The Middle Colorado Watershed Council is hosting a free screening of the movie The Great Divide. Join us at 6:30PM at the Rifle Public Library on Tuesday, May 8th!

While the library closes at 6:00PM, doors will be open for the event from 6:00PM to 6:30PM. However, it is completely fine if you cannot make it to the film on time; a phone number will be posted on the front door of the library for you to call so that we can come down and let you in!

Tens of millions of people, billions of dollars of agricultural production, and an enormous amount of economic activity across a vast swath of America from California to the Mississippi River are all dependent on rivers born in the mountains of Colorado.  In a time of mounting demand and limited supply, the need for all citizens to better understand and participate in decisions affecting this critical resource is paramount.
The Great Divide, a feature length documentary film from the Emmy award winning team of Havey Productions, in association with Colorado Humanities, illustrates the timeless influence of water in both connecting and dividing an arid state and region. From Ancient Puebloan cultures and the gold rush origins of Colorado water law to agriculture, dams, diversions and conservation; the film reveals today’s critical need to cross “the great divide,” replacing conflict with cooperation.
