River Source supports people living as good stewards of their watersheds by providing watershed science and policy education, planning, monitoring, ecological restoration and adapting to climate change

Donate online to River Source to get kids outdoors to connect with local rivers and to help youth proclaim "It's My Water Future!"

Click here to donate to connect kids to local rivers with hands-on restoration and water monitoring activities and to get youth engaged in the civics of protecting our rivers. We receive requests each year from schools such as Raton, Springer, Grants, DeVargas Middle School and many more that we cannot provide due to funding constraints. We also engage youth in creating a Secure Water Future but cannot provide pre-Legislative lessons on the civics of water policy and law due to limited funding. Your donation will get kids outdoors and prepare the next generation to be leaders in protecting our rivers.
