Waterwise Wednesday at the Eagle Library, 5 – 7 p.m. on Sept. 8

The Waterwise Wednesday programs continue September 8 at 5 p.m. at the Eagle Library with special guest Dan Luecke. Our focus is on the endangered species that are impacted by water diversion projects with a special emphasis on the recovery program for threatened and endangered fish species in the Colorado River

Dan Luecke, former director of the Rocky Mountain Office of Environmental Defense, is a hydrologist and an environmental scientist who has worked on water management and aquatic habitat protection issues in the West for more than 20 years.

Last month at the at Waterwise Wednesday program on Wolcott Reservoir, we heard about the “10,825 water” and it’s relative importance among proponents of the potential Wolcott Reservoir. Dan will help us understand this term and what it means in relation to endangered fish species, water projects and future flows in the Eagle and Colorado River. Other endangered and non-native species will be discussed.

-The goal of the series, held the second Wednesday of each month through April, (except December!) is to learn more about specific and complicated water issues facing our community. Water is everybody’s business and participants are encouraged to ask questions and join in the discussion following the presentation.

-Please call to reserve your seat so organizers can plan munchies. Volunteers are also needed to help with the series. Call (970) 827-5406 or email info@eagleriverwatershedcouncil.org to add your name to the distribution list for future Waterwise Wednesday program details.
