The 2012 Colorado College State of the Rockies Report Card

This 2012 State of the Rockies Report Card is titled The Colorado River Basin: Agenda for Use, Restoration, and Sustainability for the Next Generation. The sections of the Report Card include a summary of the Rockies Project Source to Sea trip, an investigation into the Colorado River's many diversions and uses, and an assessment of the "Law of the River," among many other topics.

The Rockies Project aims to inspire Report Card readers and Rockies events attendees to creatively contemplate, discuss, and engage in shaping the future of our beloved, beautiful, and fragile region-the Rocky Mountain West. Enjoy!
