The Little Snake River meanders along the Colorado-Wyoming border, little known in comparison to the Yampa or the Green rivers.

But the Little Snake and “Rio Rica,” a short film about the river, will be the subject for an online screening and panel discussion at 4 p.m Wednesday, Feb. 10.

Admission is free to this online event hosted by the Hutchins Water Center at Colorado Mesa University.

“Rio Rica” will be “a jumping-off point for a panel discussion on the role that rivers like the Little Snake can play in a changing world, in terms of ecological processes, community resilience and reaction,” according to information about the event.
