The Mancos River Restoration and Resilience Group (MRR) is a science working group formed by stakeholders with a shared interest to understand the current status of the Mancos River and identify opportunities to for restoration and building resilience in the watershed. In 2016, the Mancos Conservation District received a grant from Colorado Water Conservation Board to develop a science-based report, gather existing data, summarize the current state of the river, and identify information needs. Mancos Conservation District and Mancos River Watershed Group are compiling existing data in order to assess the resilience of the Mancos River in meeting multiple uses and values in the face of changing climate conditions. Find additional information on MRR here.
The MRR Steering Committee guides the efforts of our collaboration: directs the collection of existing data and data gaps assessment, provides direction for the Mancos River Assessment, and assists with stakeholder engagement in the development and delivery of the report. The Steering Committee is open to anyone who would like to support its function. To volunteer, contact Page (firstname.lastname@example.org).
