colorado water trust’s mission is to restore flow to colorado’s rivers in need.
We are a home-grown, statewide 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Since 2001, we’ve restored 16.8 billion gallons of water to 588 miles of rivers and streams across the state. We work collaboratively with our partners so that our projects benefit both the people we work with and our rivers.
- Improving the natural environment by protecting fish and other wildlife.
- Supporting agricultural communities by providing water sharing opportunities.
- Bolstering local economies that depend on healthy rivers for fishing, kayaking, tubing, and rafting.
- Enhancing the Colorado landscapes and lifestyles that we all cherish and enjoy.
We all depend on rivers
