Water Education

Community Agriculture Alliance is the leader for public education and outreach regarding regional water.  For over 15 years we have provided forums, workshops and tours throughout Northwest Colorado helping our residents and guests better understand the value of  and the pressure on our water resources.

The educational goals established by CAA to assist the Yampa-White-Green (YWG) Round Table and Colorado Water Conservation Board are:

1. Raise public awareness of the YWG Basin Implementation Plan and the Colorado’s Water Plan
2. Raise public awareness of YWG Roundtable activities
3. Plan, implement and facilitate a series of Water Education Forums/Workshops/Tours in Craig, Meeker, Rangely and Steamboat  
4. Increase collaborations and partnerships with other YWG basin organizations that wish to:

  • Promote water education
  • Encourage locally driven collaborative solutions
  • Encourage community participation in solution based discussions, issues and solutions
  • Provide professional, informative and educational activities in the region
  • Provide information on regional water projects, studies and related issues
  • Engage with area water interest groups to encourage constructive discussions and actions regarding water issues and projects in Northwest Colorado

Colorado’s population is expected to nearly double within the next 40 years and Northwest Colorado will be heavily impacted. We must be part of the solutions to the problems that are on the horizon.
