Project Overview

Project Summary   Interactive Maps       webinars

In September 2014 the Springs Stewardship Institute was awarded funding through the U.S. Department Of Interior's WaterSMART program for a two-year project to support the Southern Rockies Landscape Conservation Cooperative (SRLCC).

Colorado River Drainage within the Southern Rockies LCC boundary

The goal of this two-year project is to provide land managers, researchers, and NGOs with comprehensive, current information about springs and springs-dependent species, and to develop a landscape-based climate change risk model for the region.

We will provide this information in a secure, accessible, and user-friendly format that will allow for analysis of springs ecosystem vulnerability to land management practices and climate change.

You can explore our interactive online map of springs distribution in the Southern Rockies LCC. This information is preliminary, and many more springs remain unmapped.

We invite you to join our mailing list in order to receive occasional updates about upcoming webinars, workshops, and the availability of additional online information. You will typically receive not more than one message per month.

Or you may contact with questions, comments, or suggestions, or to get involved.
