Breaking News & Updates

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.


Advocating for Healthy and Resilient Rivers

Our Vision

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.
