We honor the Colorado River Basin watershed by giving it what it needs: Thanks.

 

The Colorado River Basin watershed is home to myriad flora and fauna of the Rocky Mountains and the high and low deserts of the Southwest, to some First People's place of emergence and to over 36 million beneficiaries from cities, towns, farmland and agriculture in six states. This 6 billion year old Being, the Colorado River, could run dry in our lifetime. She hasn't run naturally to Her Mother, Grandmother Ocean, since the '30s. She is the most endangered river in the United States.

Find out how this movement is different. Find out how gratitude makes a change.

Water Comes First introduces the modern world to an ancient way of being in relationship to water. We invite all people to participate. 

 

 

 
 
The beginning of the Colorado River. The headwaters start at the Continental Divide. As it runs through the mountains and canyons, other large rivers join Red to become a mighty force offering its life to millions.

At the end of the Colorado River is a 75 mile swath of dry delta, once lush riparian area at the sea. In March of 2014 many lovers of Red have seen Her kiss Her Mother, the Sea of Cortez, once again, . Photo courtesy of Peter McBride.
