Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference Coming in October

The Colorado Watershed Assembly, Colorado Riparian Association, and Colorado Foundation for Water Education have joined forces to put on the eighth annual Sustaining Colorado Watersheds conference this fall, October 8 - 10, at the Westin Riverfront Resort in Avon, Colorado. The theme for this year's conference is "Water: What is the New Normal?" and workshops will explore how baseline shifts in demographics, climate and precipitation, technology, use of water and land, and public perceptions are affecting Colorado well as how we who care about Colorado watersheds are or should be responding.

Since I write the RM Outdoor Adventures series that is set in Salida, Colorado on the Arkansas River, I have an ongoing interest in seeing not only the Arkansas River, but ALL of Colorado's watersheds (including the Blue River watershed that includes Breckenridge, Colorado, where I live) are kept clean and healthy and flowing at a sustainable level. I hope if you, too, are interested in preserving Colorado watersheds, you will consider attending this conference!
