The Economic Impact of River Recreation in Colorado

A presentation by:

Molly Mugglestone
Director of Communications and Colorado Policy at Business for Water Stewardship

Rivers are major economic drivers throughout the West, and as people recreate on or near them they are spending dollars that are not inconsequential to the economy. In this presentation, Molly will provide an overview of a new study on the economic impacts of river related recreation in the state of Colorado. This new study was commissioned by Business for Water Stewardship and undertaken by leading economists Southwick and Associates, who have also worked on economic research for the Outdoor Industry Association and Audubon Arizona among many other groups. Understanding how river related recreation contributes the Colorado’s economy helps in making the case for water policy that advances healthy and flowing rivers and encourages conservation and efficiency.
