Stage 1 fire restrictions are in place throughout the Roaring Fork Watershed and officials ask everyone heed the restrictions.

Andy Mueller from the Colorado River District will discuss this and more during this evening’s Brooksher Watershed Institute presentation, Rising Temperatures and Declining Flows: The Current and Likely Future of the Colorado River Basin. Additional details and registration can be found at www.roaringfork.org/events.
