Our Work

Community Involvement Program

Activating Big Thompson communities to drive enhancement projects, stewardship, and planning for regional health and resilience across private and public lands.

Community Projects

The Big Thompson Watershed Coalition recognizes that in order to have a healthy watershed over the long-term, our communities need to be involved in ongoing watershed health updates, restoration planning, and river corridor enhancement. The BTWC strives to serve a hub of information and community discussions  about the Big Thompson watershed. Our community program works to inform and involve our communities in Big Thompson conservation and management by hosting and participating in community education and outreach events, organizing and leading public meetings and workshops on topics of watershed health, engaging community members in restoration projects and at home stewardship, responding promptly to community concerns and questions about the watershed, and more.
