11th Annual River Float - Saturday, May 30, 2015

Ever wonder about the birds along the river? Or where the water from the Roaring Fork goes after joining the Colorado? Or just want to enjoy a beautiful morning on the river?


Join Roaring Fork Conservancy staff and hand-picked local water experts on an informative, fun float down the lower Roaring Fork River. After a morning on the water, join us for lunch at Coryell Ranch where you can relax in the grass or try your hand at Stand Up Paddle Boarding or fly casting.


Not up for a morning float? That’s okay! Join us for lunch, gear demos, and educational river conversation. There’s something for everyone, so sign up today! Space is limited and RSVP's required!

(Float is open to ages 8 and up. Lunch and gear demo is open to all ages.) More information: - SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Cattle Creek Stream Health Evaluation - Garfield County Funds Water Quality Study

Roaring Fork Conservancy is embarking on a multi-year study to gain a better understanding of water quality issues on Cattle Creek. RFC will sample 7 sites along the Creek for water quality constituents and macroinvertebrates this summer and fall. This data, along with land use analysis, will be used to recommend best management practices and inform stakeholders including landowners, water rights holders, county officials and state regulators

In May of 2015, KDNK interviewed Heather Lewin, Watershed Action Director at RFC, about this study. You can listen here.


For more information about this study please contact Heather at
