Video examines what our rivers mean to people
Like that familiar partner across the breakfast table, sometimes we residents of the Grand Valley take our rivers for granted.
And like all long-term relationships, it’s worthwhile to stop occasionally and see what’s changed, and what may change, for both the good and the bad.
The Water Center at Colorado Mesa University will offer the first public screening of its new documentary “Water in the Desert: The Grand Valley and its Rivers” at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 28 in the Ballroom at the CMU Center.
The video, according to a press release, examines the value and relationship “of the Colorado River corridor through the Grand Valley” and that also includes the Gunnison River, a major influence of its own.
