Colorado’s Yampa River: Free Flowing and Wild Forever

October 22, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Colorado’s Yampa River today is a delicately balanced bio-physical system that offers sustainable food and water for wildlife and humans alike. The Yampa and its interconnected resources still function almost as they have for eons— a wonderful anomaly in an otherwise river-whacked Colorado River basin. Yet, there are proposals to undo this evolutionary masterpiece, all in a matter of 10 years, to support unsustainable population growth on the eastern slope of Colorado. Join Colorado nature photographer John Fielder and river rat Pat Tierney as they photograph and write their way down the entire 200-mile length of the river. Between Fielder’s sublime images and Tierney’s human and natural history text, you may feel like you are rowing along with the authors! John Fielder has worked tirelessly to promote the protection of Colorado’s ranches, open space and wild lands during his 33-year career as a nature photographer and publisher. His photography has influenced people and legislation and over 40 books have been published depicting his Colorado photography. His latest book is “The Yampa River: Free Flowing & Wild Forever.”
