A Force for Nature

Stand for a Living Colorado River

The Colorado River is in crisis. The already over-promised flows in the Colorado River have declined by 20 percent over the past hundred years and could fall another 55 percent due to climate change by the end of the century.

At stake is the fate of an iconic river, the 40 million people who rely upon it, and the incredible landscapes, ecosystems, economies, and cultures that define the region.

Join us in calling for bold leadership from Colorado Governor Polis to chart a new course for a living Colorado River. As the alarm bells ring, we need a champion standing against all non-tribal dams and diversions in the basin and supporting a more just and sustainable water system. Take action today.
