Left Hand Watershed Center (formerly Lefthand Watershed Oversight Group) is a 501c3 nonprofit, stakeholder driven organization that aims to protect and restore our watersheds for people and environment, using a collaborative, science-based approach. We provide place-based watershed education opportunities to ensure our watersheds remain healthy for future generations.

Participating Watershed Groups

Event Overview

Front Range Watershed Days aims to inspire the community to connect with their local watersheds. This event will include a bio-blitz (data collection & mini watershed tour), food, hands-on activities for the whole family, and an opportunity to “meet the scientists.”

Bio-Blitz: 9am-2:30pm (lunch included)

Choose one of four watersheds!
(FREE, sign-up Required)

Part-community engagement event and part-scientific endeavor, this event will generate region-scale scientific data about the health and recovery of our watersheds that include biological and physical measurements using a bio-blitz approach. Participants will have the opportunity to collect meaningful data, meet river scientists, learn about data collection methods used to understand watershed health, and take a mini watershed tour.
