Abby Burk, Audubon's WRAN CO Coordinator, participated on a radio panel on KGNU Boulder's radio show on March 5, focusing on Colorado's State Water Plan. This radio show is part of a larger series, Connecting the Drops, about important water issues and conservation efforts in Colorado. Callers phoned in some of their concerns about the creation of a state water plan and the panel responded. Listen to the recorded radio panel discussion or get info about the Colorado Water Plan.
Come meet other Audubon members and partners as we work together on Audubon's new Western River Action Network, focusing on conserving the Colorado River and its tributaries.
DID YOU KNOW? Millions of migrating birds representing over 250 species depend on key western rivers for their survival. Over 100 species spend some portion of their life cycle in riparian areas and many of these species are now threatened or endangered - as demands increase but water supplies dwindle.
Concerned about the drought or how poor water quality might be impacting local communities and avian species ... but not sure
What can you do about it? Is there an important water-related issue you want to share with other Audubon members? What can we do? Join us and find out!!
Together, our voices are louder and stronger. We invite you to join us for this day-long event so that together we'll be ready to effectively fight for healthy rivers and streams!
In the arid West we are all connected by rivers; they are the lifeblood of our land, our economy, our way of life. Western rivers, like the Colorado River and its tributaries, provide water for tens of millions of people, including twenty-two Native American tribes and the major cities of Denver, Phoenix, Albuquerque and Tucson.
Audubon needs your help , Join the Western Rivers Action Network as we rise to this historic challenge to create healthier western rivers for the birds, wildlife and people.
