About UWP

History

The Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership (UWP) was created in spring, 2007, when regional groups and concerned citizens applied for a watershed-planning grant. In 2013, UWP became a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to understanding, restoring and protecting land and natural resources within the Uncompahgre Watershed. UWP’s projects are completed though partnerships with a grassroots coalition of citizens, nonprofits, local and regional governments, and federal and state agencies
