Author Jonathan Waterman gives a talk on his experiences and research on the Colorado River. Published in two books: Running Dry and The Colorado River: Running Through Conflict, Jon calls attention to the multitude of difficulties facing the river and the people dependent upon it.

Supplying vital water to more than 30 million Americans living in the arid West, the Colorado River is one of the most diverted, dammed, and heavily litigated rivers in the world. To learn more about the river, and the people depending on the Colorado, Jon traveled the length of the river. From the Rocky Mountains to its Mexican delta, all 1,450 miles. Join us when we listen to Jon share insights gained on the river about the challenges facing the Colorado, and us.

Mr. Waterman’s books will be available for purchase at the event.
