Robert Redford celebrates water flowing in the Colorado River Delta

(July 25, 2014)  Today is Colorado River Day.

Spend a few minutes with Robert Redford as he narrates a new video from Raise the River documenting the historic 2014 pulse flow release of water into the Colorado River Delta, where the river had been largely absent for the past 50 years.  The river flowed, birds sang, and people came to celebrate the return of the river.  In the wake of the pulse flow, nature returns!

Raise the River and Change the Course are working together to restore flows to the Colorado River.
