Colorado River Program

Giving Back to the West's Life-Giving River

Reconnecting the River Through Cross-border Collaboration

The United States and Mexico signed a bi-national agreement to rejuvenate the delta region and reconnect the Colorado while defining how the countries will share and store water in times of drought and shortages. The Conservancy played a big role by informing policy makers, designing the water release and raising money for water rights. Perseverance is paying off for people and nature.
