Roaring Fork Conservancy is the watershed action and education organization for the Roaring Fork Watershed that brings people together to protect our rivers. 

We focus on:  
Water Quantity  |  Water Quality  |  Riparian Habitat Protection

Ever wonder how exactly spring river conditions can be predicted by looking at snowpack? Or, how water content is determined by exploring the snow? And, frankly why does it even matter how much water is in snow? Meet us the Redstone Inn for coffee, refreshments and an introduction to exploring snowpack as a natural resource and its critical importance in Western water management. Derrick Wyle, Natural Resource Conservation Service snow surveyor and Roaring Fork Conservancy’s Sarah Johnson will be your guides on McClure Pass as we explore a SNOTEL monitoring site, conduct a snow course survey, and dig a snow pit. Registration is required.  

Please keep the following in mind:
 * Snowshoes or cross country skis are required! 
 * Participants will carpool to McClure Pass from the Redstone Inn.
 * Appropriate for ages 12 years and older. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
 * Please dress appropriately as the event will happen snow or shine.
