The statewide “Water 2012” awareness campaign is winding down. What started as a celebration of Colorado’s historic water moments will now be transitioning in into a statewide “Value of Water” movement. This proactive crusade will continue on several fronts across all of the river basins in the state with a single goal of getting water on every body’s mind.
It has been almost a year since Governor John Hickenlooper declared 2012 the Year of Water. The past year was a time for all Coloradans to reflect, learn, and plan for their “water” future. What started out as a small water awareness campaign by the Foundation for Water Education grew into a statewide water celebration.
In an effort to raise awareness about vital water issues, the WIP, in conjunction with the Durango Arts Center (DAC), conducted a month-long Water in the West Art Show. The gala opening was August 10th at DAC.
U.S. Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet introduced a resolution in May recognizing 2012 as the ‘Year of Water’ in Colorado.
I hadn’t realized until I got an (en masse) email from Senator Mark Udall recently, that we’re celebrating water in Colorado this year. He and Sen.
U.S. Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet introduced today a resolution recognizing 2012 as the "Year of Water" in Colorado.
The entire state will be involved in the Colorado Water 2012 celebration next year, and already plans are underway for various celebratory and educational events.
