NOMINATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE 2019 POUDRE PIONEER AWARD

The Poudre Runs Through It Study/Action Work Group (PRTI) is seeking nominations for its annual award to recognize achievements toward its goal of making the Cache la Poudre River a premier example of a healthy working river. We wish to recognize individuals or organizations, including businesses and public agencies, who have contributed substantially to furthering our goal.

Our definition of a healthy working river is one that supplies the goods and services demanded by our complex society, within the existing and evolving water rights system and honoring existing property rights, while maintaining and improving ecological integrity and resilience.

CRITERIA

  • Many contributions can further the goal of a healthy working river, including—but not limited to—collaboration; production of scientific or technical information; fundraising; engineering excellence; public outreach or interpretation; or monitoring. These contributions may be judged on their degree of effectiveness, innovation, creativity, novelty, problem solving ability, ease of duplication by others, and/or leadership. Nominees need not live or work in the Poudre Basin, but the tangible results of their efforts must be evident within the basin and have a direct nexus to our goal for the Poudre River.

SELECTION

  • Nominations are solicited in conjunction with publicity of the upcoming Poudre River Forum, can be made by anyone, and are due by Wednesday, December 12, 2018. The Poudre River Forum Subcommittee will make an initial selection of the top three nominations, which will then be forwarded to the PRTI membership for final selection. Any individuals directly associated with any nomination will recuse themselves from the selection process.

PRESENTATION

  • The award will be presented as part of the Sixth Annual Poudre River Forum on Friday, February 1, 2019. The winner will be selected prior to the forum and invited to share a short “acceptance speech”. PRTI will also distribute a press release to local newspapers and social/radio media.

SUBMIT YOUR NOMINATION

  • Please submit your nomination to the email shown below, including:
    • A letter stating why the person or entity you are nominating is worthy of the nomination (no more than one single-sided page)
    • No more than three additional letters that support your nomination
    • Please email your nominations by WEDNESDAY, DEC 12, 2018 to PoudreRiverForum@gmail.com

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE AWARD? Contact the Nomination Committee Chair, Robert Ward, at PoudreRiverForum@gmail.com

Local craft brewers, distillers and the Poudre Heritage Alliance are happy to announce we are hosting the 2nd Annual POUDRE POUR to highlight the major ingredient that makes stouts, lagers, and craft liquors so tasty…WATER from the Poudre River!

This event is not your typical brewfest! The POUDRE POUR raises awareness about local water issues and brings community members together to celebrate our Poudre River heritage and our most important resource:  water. It includes an afternoon of FUN and LEARNING with craft brews, distilled liquor, and natural soda tasting stations; appetizers made with farm fresh ingredients; presentations on the many facets of “water issues” in Northern Colorado; kids activities; live entertainment indoors and outdoors; costumed docents in historic cabins; art exhibitions highlighting the beauty of the Poudre River corridor; and a silent auction featuring art, trips, treats, tickets, and more!

Proceeds will benefit the Poudre Heritage Alliance, the 501c3 managing nonprofit of the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area. The PHA works to PROMOTE a variety of historical and cultural opportunities, ENGAGE people in their river corridor and INSPIRE learning, preservation, and stewardship.

The indoor/outdoor POUDRE POUR will be hosted at the Carnegie Center for Creativity and Heritage Courtyard at 200 Mathews St, Fort Collins, 80524. The venue reflects the region’s cultural heritage and ties directly to the event theme. The event will be held regardless of rain or snow, with contingency plans in case of inclement weather.

Thank you for supporting the Poudre Heritage Alliance! We look forward to having you join us as we celebrate the wonders of water and the history of the region!

Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with space limited to 600 people. There will be no ticket sales available at the door! (Come back soon for more information on ticket sales!)

CCWD Childrens Water Festival - 2019 @ Island Grove Regional Park | Greeley | Colorado | United States

CCWCD Children’s Water Festival will promote hands-on and brains-on learning about local water issues to fourth grade students in the Weld, Morgan and Adams counties.

This one day FREE event will bring water professionals from around the state of Colorado to provide presentations and activities about water, water conservation, human health and aquatic life while covering a wide range of core curriculum areas including language arts, math, science, social studies, visual arts, and health & wellness.  The activities will help students answer one or more of these questions:

  • Why is water so important to life?
  • How much water do we use and how much is there?
  • What is the water cycle and why is it important?
  • What is a watershed and why is it important?
  • How are trees, plants, animals, people, soils and water interdependent?
  • How do our actions affect water and all nature?

The festival goals are to teach fourth grade students that water is an essential, limited resource and that they can take action to protect this natural resource.  We provide teachers with materials and lessons that they can use for years to come.

The Central Colorado Water Conservancy District created the Children’s Water Festival in 1991. This festival is one of the oldest children’s water festivals in the nation. In 2006, the City of Greeley Water Conservation and Stormwater programs began co-sponsoring the event.

This scholarship initiative provides field trip funding to Larimer and Weld County schools when they take educational field trips to the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area.
