As the summer continues to become drier and hotter, the importance of water in our lives is becoming magnified even if you don’t work with it on a day to day basis. Splashing in some water is a great, fun way to keep you cool on the weekends, but a lot of us along the Middle Colorado rely upon water for our recreational business, our industry, or our agricultural fields, which at the very least we all enjoy as part of the open Western Slope landscape.

There are lots of awesome ways to get out and see or even beautify your watershed this summer. Glenwood Springs is hosting it’s annual RiverFEST on August 4th, with a river clean up from 9am-noon (join the MCWC Clean Up Team!) and stand up paddleboarding demos, fly fishing demos, and music afterwards. We’re hosting two public meetings in August to determine what to put in our new Interpretive Center and we need your input (see below), and we’re hosting a Watershed by Bike tour on September 15th down the Glenwood Canyon Recreation Trail for a morning of beautiful downhill riding with three short educational stops with speakers along the way. Pick one and join us sometime this summer!
