Our biennial Colorado River Water Leaders program is patterned after our highly successful California Water Leaders program and selects rising stars from the seven states that rely on the river — California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and New Mexico — to take part in a cohort.
During the seven-month program designed for working professionals, the cohort members explore issues surrounding the iconic Southwest river, deepen their water knowledge and build leadership skills.
