What You've Said

Samples of what signers of our online petition have said about the river:

The Colorado and Fraser rivers are the lifeblood of the Colorado outdoor experience. People travel from far and wide to see and spend time in Colorado's wild places. These features must be protected, if not for their magic alone, then for the undeniable economic benefit they bring to our state.”

Andrew from Denver, Colorado

Fishing, hiking, camping are our favorite activities. We need these beautiful rivers to stay healthy to enjoy our quality of life here in Beautiful Colorado!”

Kat from Littleton, Colorado

For almost 20 yrs my mother has lived and owned a private business in the Fraser Valley. Her livelihood and that of her customers and friends depend greatly on the strong health of the Fraser. Businesses similar to my mothers as well as larger firms present in the area do a great service to the economy of the state of Colorado. I, and many people the world over, would agree that the Fraser River and the Fraser Valley are integral elements that help define the "whole" of what is loved about the state of Colorado. Diverting a river like the Fraser to a point of diminished health is an irresponsible act, and demonstrates a very "short-sighted" understanding of the importance of a great natural resource. Long live the Fraser River!”

Scott from Colorado

I am from a pioneer family who settled next to the Colorado river in western Colorado. To me, this river is a symbol of the beautiful American West, freedom and nature. To harm it is a disgrace and a tragedy for our nation.”

Connor from Phoenix, Arizona

I spent the first 25 years of my life in Colorado. Be it fishing or simply just splashing in the water, the Colorado River is a natural treasure that is already over-used, and if we allow it to continue on this path there will be nothing like this left for our children and grandchildren.”
