Hi Friends of the Colorado River!
Save The Colorado is going on tour, and YOU can join both the fun and the action to help protect and restore this great river system.
Tonight, June 21st, we will join the Colorado Ocean Coalition in Boulder, CO by co-sponsoring a great new film, “Ocean Frontiers,” which highlights a bold new vision for ocean stewardship. Click here to watch the trailer for the film.
The event will be held at The Dairy Center for the Arts, 2590 Walnut Street, beginning at 5:30pm for “Blue Drinks” happy hour and then at 6:45pm for the film.
Save The Colorado will help you take action at this event to restore the Colorado River Delta, and if you sign a postcard to federal decision-makers, we will give you a free “Save The Colorado” poster.
In July, we will be joining forces with the Redford Center to promote
events and a film tour for their great new documentary, “Watershed: Exploring a New Water Ethic for the New West.”
Stay tuned for more details about this film tour. We will kick off the tour on July 28th in San Diego with producers Robert Redford and his son Jamie Redford. We will be having screenings and events in Los Angeles, Tucson, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, and Denver.
Also around July 25th, our friends in Flagstaff, Arizona are hosing a big “Colorado River Day” celebration. July 25th is the day that in 1921 Congress officially named it the “Colorado River.” Stay tuned for more details about how you can join in the fun.
