Hi Friends of the Colorado River! Here's this week's updates for our work protecting and…
Hello Friends of the Colorado River!
The Colorado River begins in the state of Colorado, and that’s where policies to protect the Colorado River should also begin!
In January in his “State of the State” speech, Governor Hickenlooper spoke about Colorado’s water supply challenges. He made a bold statement: “Every discussion about water should start with conservation.”
Unfortunately, Governor Hickenlooper has been all over the board in his statements about water over the past two years – he’s supported dams, fracking, and funding to study huge pipelines.
Right now he needs to hear from you so we can help steer him in the right direction!
Click here to sign the Care2.com petition to tell Governor Hickenlooper not to focus on dams, fracking or pipelines, but to focus on water conservation. Please join a large coalition of environmentalists, farmers, and businesspeople in sending a strong message to Governor Hickenlooper.
We need to encourage Governor Hickenlooper to follow through on his promise in his State of the State speech. We will follow this petition up by continuing to communicate with the Governor and his administration about to protecting and restoring the Colorado River.
Thank you for your support!
