In the Roaring Fork Watershed many impactful variables are shifting.
As a final project to a class that focused on Colorado’s rivers each student was to choose a specific watershed in Colorado and research important issues within said watershed. Focusing in on the Roaring Fork Watershed I quickly noticed that many of the issues occurring with the riparian habitat of the Roaring Fork Watershed are a result of the decreasing water levels. A variety of variables contribute to this decreasing water source and it is my hope that more people become aware of this important issue.
