Requesting Poudre River Information   

Requesting information related to Poudre River

The Colorado Conservation Exchange is conducting a survey of organizations, activities, and information related to the Poudre River that will eventually be referenced on the Poudre River Wiki and The Poudre Runs Through It, a group seeking to make the Poudre River "the world's best example of a healthy, working river." The information gathered will be consolidated into a public working document and will be shared online to help facilitate collaboration and benefit future management activities and information gathering in both the Poudre and the Big Thompson watersheds.

Volunteer for Hydrology-Related Research   

Volunteers Needed for Hydrology-Related Research

Volunteers are needed to help with some hydrology-related field work in the High Park Fire area this summer.  Work may include, but may not be limited to, emptying sediment fences, repairing sediment fences, and installing and maintaining a runoff collection system.  This work will often be strenuous and will include hiking off-trail for multiple miles in a day, occasionally carrying heavy or awkward loads, and doing work that includes shoveling and transporting buckets of dirt. This work will provide valuable field experience to those interested in post-fire recovery, water quality, sediment transport, and runoff.  

If interested in helping out, please contact Adam JohnsonCodie Wilson, or Stephanie Kampf

Colorado Student Water Field Conference

September 26-28, 2014 | Grand Valley

The Water Center at Colorado Mesa University invites water faculty and students to attend the premiere Colorado Student Water Field Conference. The goal of the conference is to introduce and engage students of Colorado water in water science, studies and issues around the state. This year, the focus will be on how issues related to agricultural irrigation and environmental health come together in western Colorado's Grand Valley via field trips, tours and presentations by faculty, water professionals, and students. The conference is aimed at undergraduate students, but grad students are welcome.
