Welcome to our website!
The Poudre Runs Through It: Northern Colorado's Water Future was launched in 2011 to bring together those of us who love the Poudre River to better understand it and the role it plays in our lives. The Colorado Water Institute at Colorado State University joined with UniverCity Connections and the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado to offer a three month series for the public of Fort Collins and neighboring areas.
Now, the Colorado Water Institute will carry on the banner for The Poudre Runs Through It: Northern Colorado's Water Future with the cooperation and participation of many community groups and individuals. This website will provide an opportunity for all of us who love the Poudre River to learn more about the river and to engage in ways to make it "the world's best example of a working river that's also healthy!"
