Tomorrow is Colorado Gives Day! 
Whether it’s where you live, where you recreate, or where you come to get away, the Big Thompson watershed is a place of iconic beauty that supports millions of Coloradoans through the water it provides, the economies it bolsters, and the joy it brings our communities. But, our watershed is vulnerable to wildfire and subsequent post-fire impacts, flood events, development and shifting land uses, and climate change. Given the many ways we use water, it’s imperative we all work to help protect it!

Please join us in accomplishing our mission of working with our communities and partners to protect and restore the health and vitality of the Big Thompson watershed! Your donation to BTWC directly supports our work to help recover from a devastating 2020 wildfire season, lessen the chances for future catastrophic wildfires, protect our water quality and resources by maintaining natural hydrologic and geomorphic processes, and build awareness for how our communities can help build the watershed’s resilience. Given what we accomplished in 2022, your donation can go a long way! We took action this year to address these pressing challenges and were able to:
  • Source over $3 million in federal, state, and local wildfire recovery funds to:
    • Aerially mulch over 1,100 acres of severely burned land in the Glen Haven and Buckhorn areas
    • Plant 3,000 ponderosa pine seedlings on severely burned private lands through collaboration with our partners and volunteers
    • Set the stage for additional in-stream work to reduce impacts from post-fire flooding in 2023
  • Create defensible space and reduce wildfire risk across 20 acres in the Storm Mountain community while also working with them to organize a community-led Wildfire Action Group
  • Source funding to reduce wildfire risk and increase forest health across 100+ acres of private lands in 2023 
  • Complete our 20-year River Envisioning Project and source funding to begin to identify collaborative projects to enhance river health and community access.
  • And most importantly, keep working to build relationships with many community members, partners, and stakeholders, without whom we could not complete any of the work we do

We will carry on with this important work in 2023 and we welcome the help of our supporters to make it happen!

Happy holidays and many thanks,
