The Greek goddess Artemis is the protector of the hunt and of nature. She is usually depicted with her trusty doe deer, a bow and arrows.

Colorado’s headwaters regions straddle the Continental Divide and produce clean water that flows into states as far away as California and Mississippi as well as Mexico. Population growth produces steadily increasing demand for this vital resource while climate change threatens its sustainability. At the same time, mineral extraction could damage this natural resource beyond repair.

Combined with corporate and political shortsightedness, these issues represent the most serious threat Colorado’s headwaters have ever faced. Colorado Headwaters is the culmination of grass-roots efforts to protect and preserve the lands and ecosystems that sustain our vital water resources.
