- Jeff Ravage
Since our inception in 1998, our dedication to our watershed, our community, and striving toward a greater good have driven our work. We believe in working with stakeholders big and small, supporting our local communities and economies with our work, fostering stewardship of the land and water, working with nature, and sharing knowledge and skills with partners near and far to promote and sustain healthy watersheds.
Our work to protect the Upper South Platte Watershed is guided by three core principles:
