Requesting Poudre River Information   

Requesting information related to Poudre River

The Colorado Conservation Exchange is conducting a survey of organizations, activities, and information related to the Poudre River that will eventually be referenced on the Poudre River Wiki and The Poudre Runs Through It, a group seeking to make the Poudre River "the world's best example of a healthy, working river." The information gathered will be consolidated into a public working document and will be shared online to help facilitate collaboration and benefit future management activities and information gathering in both the Poudre and the Big Thompson watersheds.
