Running Waters, also the name of my grandfather’s farm, have haunted me since childhood and, having lived in Colorado the majority of my adult life, water has become ever so important, and the reason I applied to Water Education Colorado for a job. I feel so fortunate to have been hired.
I am overwhelmed at the number of people and organizations that are involved in the use, management, conservation and stewardship of Colorado’s most precious natural resource. The numbers are staggering, the efforts have been going on for years and yet the work seems to be only just beginning.
I am, though, also overjoyed that so much of the work is being done by dedicated stewards, souls committed to seeing that Colorado’s water is used equitably, wisely and beneficially. Water Education Colorado is on the forefront of those efforts and I am so proud of this small but mighty band of water warriors as they educate, collaborate and, without advocating, spread the word. My joy comes from an awareness of the support we receive from individuals and organizations who are subscribing members. Become a new member or renew your membership and enjoy the many benefits we provide.
As summer winds down and the crisp mornings and cool evenings of September roll in, join us for our annual President’s Reception, an evening of celebration, socializing and connecting. Tickets are on sale now. Then in October we are partnering with the Colorado Riparian Association and the Colorado Watershed Assembly to produce the Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference. Join us!
Our publications shop is always open. Here you will find recent issues of Headwaters magazine, and the very informative Citizen’s Guides, including our newly published Spanish language edition of "Where Your Water Comes From" – "Guía De La Comunidad De Donde Viene Su Agua".
Perhaps we can’t all replicate my good fortune to work for Water Education Colorado but thanks to you and/or your organization for being part of Colorado’s Water Community advancing knowledge, information and news!
