SAVE THE DATE FOR RIVERBANK 2024: Tuesday September 24th at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

2023’s RiverBank Celebration was a great success—thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers who helped make this event possible.

RiverBank is our biggest event of the year! Over 200 people in our water community come together to celebrate our partnerships and raise funds to restore water to Colorado’s rivers. Join us for a fun-filled evening of food, drinks, networking, a silent auction, and the presentation of the David Getches Flowing Waters Award.

David Getches Flowing Waters Award

The David Getches Flowing Waters Award is presented each year at RiverBank to a person or entity whose contributions to Colorado’s rivers and streams demonstrate some of David Getches’ exemplary characteristics.
The 2023 David Getches Flowing Waters Award winners were Jojo La and Don Anderson!
Jojo, the former Endangered Species Policy Specialist for the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB), and Don, the former Instream Flow Coordinator for the Upper Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery Program, modeled collaboration, creativity, and persistence to bring lasting change to the 15-Mile Reach of the Colorado River.
