Our Mission:

To be an active leader in all issues affecting the water resources of the Upper Gunnison River Basin.


UGRWCD Mini-Grant Program

The Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District (District) has established a mini-grant program to support educational projects designed to expand awareness of water-related issues in the Upper Gunnison Valley. Grant requests may be up to $300.

Anyone currently engaged in education activities within the Upper Gunnison River watershed (upstream of Blue Mesa Dam) is eligible to apply for a mini-grant. This includes school or university faculty, watershed groups, or other resource organizations with a strong water connection. Western State Colorado University students developing and teaching water curriculum as part of a class may also apply.

For more information, please see the guidelines, or contact the District at beverly@ugrwcd.org or 970-641-6065.
