Join EVWC and Wildland Restoration Volunteers on May 6th, 2017 for a volunteer vegetation project along Fall River
Congratulations to the Enriching Estes 'Youth Philanthropist of the Year;' the Estes Park High School Environmental Club! Students worked hard to organize and mobilize 300+ student volunteers to remove trash, invasive species and re-vegetate Fish Creek.
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.
The EVWC will engage and enable citizens of the Estes Valley to achieve safe, ecologically healthy and attractive watersheds which are resilient in design, ensuring resiliency from fluctuating water levels and which contribute to the beauty and benefits of the Estes Valley’s natural resources.
The EVWC will promote an ecologically healthy watershed that also seeks to maximize public benefits and minimizes public risk, through community engagement and sound science.
