Water Education 

 
 

Teach our children well  

Water is Western Colorado's most vital resource. By educating both children - and adults - about water, we can ensure that this and future generations will learn to respect the value of water and continue to use water carefully and wisely. Teachers can find information in this section of our website for K-12 lesson plans, experiments and other classroom materials to assist in teaching a water-oriented curriculum. Check out water education videos. We can also send a DVD of the videos at no cost. Email:

We have copies of the new DVD "Citizen's Guide to Colorado Water Law," produced by the Colorado Foundation for Water Education. In the DVD, Colorado Supreme Court Justice Greg Hobbs explains water law and its history. E-mail us at the below address if you want us to send a copy.

The Colorado River District can provide other resources that you may need for your research or lesson plans. Email:  -- we're happy to assist you!
