Who are River Watch volunteers?
River Watch volunteers come in all shapes and sizes. School groups, watershed monitoring groups, community groups and individuals all serve as watershed stewardship volunteers. Some groups monitor multiple sites on as many rivers; others focus on one specific site in their region. The common link between them all is their appreciation and dedication to the waters of Colorado. If you have the sincere interest and desire to become a River Watch volunteer, we welcome your efforts and will do all we can to assist you in starting your program!
