The Estes Valley Watershed Coalition is a nonprofit organization that is designed to align watershed restoration and risk mitigation with community and economic development goals using a collaborative, multijurisdictional, holistic approach.  With the unique composure between resort accommodations and residential homes, the Estes Valley faces challenges to incorporate interest from the Fall River, Fish Creek, Upper Big Thompson and Black Canyon watersheds.  The Estes Valley Watershed Coalition will work to advocate and assemble those interests and coordinate those efforts with state and federal entities to see measurable outcomes of the watersheds and stream corridors in the Estes Valley.
