Living Rivers/Colorado Riverkeeper

From the Rocky Mountains through seven states and Mexico, the Colorado River is the artery of the desert southwest. Its canyons, ecology and heritage render an international treasure. However, ignorance, greed and complacency are robbing the Colorado of its ability to sustain life. Living Rivers/Colorado Riverkeeper empowers a movement to instill a new ethic of achieving ecological restoration, balanced with meeting human needs. We work to: RESTORE inundated river canyons, wetlands and the delta REPEAL antiquated laws which represent the river's death sentence REDUCE water and energy use and their impacts on the river RECRUIT constituents to aid in reviving the Colorado
