  • keep water in farming
  • help municipalities plan ahead
  • share between ag and environmental uses
  • bank water on the Colorado River

2005 Yampa and White River Tour

More than 45 tour attendees from all over the state toured the Yampa and White river valleys June 22-24. Participants heard from a variety of water resource managers on topics ranging from endangered species, oil and gas issues, recreation and irrigation management. They visited the Nature Conservancy's globally rare riparian forest at Carpenter Ranch, and received a special tour of the tunnels underneath Stagecoach Reservoir. Evenings were filled with barbeques and great opportunities to socialize and network with other tour attendees. The final day included a float down the Yampa River or fly-fishing activities.

Don't miss out next year when the Foundation tours the headwaters of three major Colorado rivers—the Arkansas, Colorado and South Platte!
