The Colorado River is at a crossroads. Unsustainable water use and management threaten the 40 million people in the Colorado River Basin as well as its unique landscapes, ecosystems, and cultures.

During our next WildEarth Webinar, we’ll discuss the crisis on the Colorado River and how the construction of new dams and diversions is not the answer. The focus will be on what’s at risk if the proposed Whitney Creek dam is constructed in Colorado’s White River National Forest.
