Speak up for the Upper Colorado River this THURSDAY

This Thursday, October 21st at 6:00pm at the Inn at Silver Creek (62927 US Highway 40, Granby), Wildlife Commissioners Dennis Buechler and Allan Jones will hold an important public meeting on the potential impacts of the Windy Gap Firming Project on the upper Colorado River and its surrounding communities.

With significant declines in fish populations below Windy Gap reservoir already documented, the expansion of the Windy Gap project could lead to the ecological collapse of one of Colorado’s valuable gold metal fisheries removing over 70% of the once mighty upper Colorado River’s historic flows.

As stewards of Colorado’s rivers and as sportsmen and women who will feel the impacts, it’s our job to make sure this water project is done in way that protects our communities, fish, and wildlife.

Protecting the upper Colorado Headwaters is a HUGE priority for TU, CTU, and the  Colorado River Headwaters TU Chapter based in Grand County.  Join us if you can, but if not, feel free to get in touch with your local Wildlife Commissioner (click here for contact info).
