Who We Are

Established in 2005, we have strong roots in our community and we are led by a diverse board of enthusiastic stakeholders. We value science and community, and embrace these values to implement on-the-ground projects. While we maintain our roots in Left Hand Creek Watershed, we strive to apply our locally-developed tools regionally for the benefit of all Front Range watersheds and communities.
