The Wonder of Water: Roaring Fork Conservancy

ROARING FORK CONSERVANCY (RFC) is one of the largest watershed organization in Colorado. Since 1996, the RFC has inspired people to explore, value and protect the Roaring Fork Watershed through our watershed education, science, and policy programs. Over the past 21 years, the nonprofit has taught over 110,000 students of all ages, conducted over 53,000 water quality tests to determine stream health, and forever protected over 300 acres in riparian land conservation easements. In addition, the RFC is doing even more to cultivate people’s relationship with water by fostering a cultural ethic that values water, rivers, and watersheds. The Roaring Fork Conservancy invites you to its new headquarters – The River Center – part education center, part research hub, part environmental action center, and part community gathering location. The River Center provides a cutting edge opportunity to protect rivers in the west at a time when the public is only beginning to grasp the true value of water. Want to learn more about water’s amazing journey in the west, or would you like to cast a fly rod or tie a fly, or perhaps you are interested in transbasin water diversions? The RFC invites you to visit The River Center on Two Rivers Road in Basalt. You are sure to be inspired to learn more about your home watershed!
