The Colorado Riparian Association was formed in 1989 by a small group of dreamers who believed that our riparian zones should not become sacrifice areas. Today, a growing group of volunteers that includes landowners, citizens, agency staff, planners, and technical specialists, the Colorado Riparian Association shares that dream by sharing its knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience with anyone who joins us in trying to improve Colorado’s river systems and riparian ecosystems.
