More About Our Annual Basin Tours
Each year, these fun and informative multi-day tours draw attendees statewide. Water Education Colorado takes lawmakers, water managers, attorneys, engineers and members of the public on a tour of a different river basin in Colorado to learn about the history, water-management practices and challenges of the area. Participants can also take part in extra-curricular activities, such as rafting or fly-fishing, dine at area ranches or open-space parks, and network among peers.
“It’s so critical to get out and experience places first hand. Policy-making, or urban growth, or the like can’t happen effectively if they happen in a bubble.”

Water Education Colorado’s mini-tours change each year to expose water professionals, decision-makers, teachers and the interested public to new areas of water use and management. Hop on the bus for an engaging day of exploring, learning and networking, and return home better informed—and with friends and connections. Past mini-tours have included everything from land use and water efficiency to agricultural viability, the bottled beverage industry, and Colorado’s vineyards. Have a great idea for an upcoming tour?
