Program 1

CWN's work helps conserve Colorado?s waters and landscapes to the benefit of all its inhabitants through an integrated approach combining education, conservation, and research. CWN currently focuses on ensuring wildlife habitat is conserved under the 2002 Farm Bill, conducting ongoing research projects and the Colorado Data Sharing Network, and growing the statewide River Watch Program. CWN will continue to strive hard to help our community? made up of volunteers, farmers, ranchers, recreational users, environmentalists, school groups, developers, watershed groups, and various agencies? achieve healthy watersheds, with sound solutions that make sense on a local level. We believe this is the only way we can create long lasting and powerful solutions. Through our River Watch Program, we work with voluntary stewards to monitor water quality and other indicators of watershed health and utilize this high quality data to educate citizens and inform decision makers about the condition of Colorado?s waters. This is the largest statewide volunteer water quality monitoring program in the country, and the only one whose data is used for regulatory purposes. CWN is uniquely positioned to promote the efforts of communities to achieve healthy watersheds.
