Hi Poudre River Lovers! After 15 years, it appears the "Final Environmental Impact Statement" for NISP will be released in May or June. We have word from the City of Fort Collins that the timeline is likely, and so we need to gear up! We have a team of scientists and attorneys who standing by to sink their teeth into the documents. We've been at it for 15 years, and we're just getting warmed up! We also ask all of you -- our AMAZING supporters -- to also gear up! We will need volunteers to help review the document, and we will need funding to help pay scientific experts. Stay tuned for more updates! Gary Wockner Director, Save The Poudre
June 22, 7:00pm
Lincoln Center, Magnolia Room

Please join legendary Colorado nature photographer, John Fielder, in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. John will showcase some of this wonderful photography on the big screen in the Magnolia Theater, including photos of the Dolores River, Yampa River, and our own
Cache la Poudre River. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act was created by Congress in 1968 and now includes 208 sections of rivers across the U.S. The Cache la Poudre River is the only designated Wild and Scenic River in the state of Colorado. Save The Poudre is hosting John Fielder to celebrate the anniversary and the Cache la Poudre’s unique Wild and Scenic status.
John Fielder has worked tirelessly to promote the protection of Colorado’s environment during his 35-year career as a nature photographer and publisher. His photography has influenced people and legislation, earning him recognition including the Sierra Club’s Ansel Adams Award in 1993 and, in 2011, the Aldo Leopold Foundation’s first Achievement Award given to an individual. Over 40 books have been published depicting his Colorado photography. He teaches photography workshops to adults and children, and his latest books are and Wildflowers of Colorado and A Colorado Winter. He lives in Summit County, Colorado. 30% of proceeds to benefit Save the Poudre. Information about John and his work can be found at johnfielder.com.
