We are a group of rafters, kayakers and canoeists based in southwestern Colorado. We love and appreciate the river that flows through and sustains our community. We recognize the multiple uses that it affords, including irrigation, recreation, domestic water supply and industrial use. However, we feel strongly that the Dolores River needs a management plan that better balances human needs with the needs of the ecosystem. Permanent protection of the river and surrounding canyon country will enhance our community and leave a legacy for future generations of which we can be proud.
Dolores River Boating Advocates helps youth form a deeper connection with their watershed. Programming provides opportunities for education and recreation on the beautiful Dolores River. Through these experiences, youth gain knowledge about Leave-No-Trace, conservation, and water management. Youth are also able to make connections with a variety of experts in green jobs (BLM, CPW, leaders in conservation, sustainable agriculture, river guides).
