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.”

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.
