Wagers for Watersheds: A Community Happy Hour Event hosted by Water Education Colorado

Our watersheds are at risk from drought, urbanization and wildfire, and in some cases, in desperate need of restoration. Will our communities prove resilient in the face of these looming threats? It’s a roll of the dice.

Join Water Education Colorado for an interactive learning experience and presentation focused on the health of our watersheds, our communities and our water. We’ve all seen how crises activate community involvement and inspire powerful collaboration. Don’t miss this exciting happy hour event, and the opportunity to engage with other concerned citizens. Danger can be thrilling. Join us!
