Will You Help Save the Colorado River?

You can be a hero for the West's hardest working river by pledging to use water wisely.

Take the Pledge

Pledge to reduce your water use and help keep precious water in the Colorado River.

The Colorado River supports nearly 40 million people and wildlife across 7 U.S. states and in Mexico. It’s also one of the most endangered rivers in the United States.

Tapped for drinking water, irrigation and other uses, the mighty Colorado River literally dries up before reaching the sea. With global warming, drought, and a population set to double by 2050, the river needs your help like never before.

I’m a Colorado River Hero. I pledge to use water wisely and help save the West’s hardest working river.
