This Texas Girl was able to take part in the Arizona Project WET journey into the Mexican Delta to see the effects of the release of water into the Colorado River basin from the southern most point of the Colorado in Arizona into Mexico.

What I learned really surprised me!

Seventeen years lapsed between my first and second encounters with the Colorado River, but it remained a part of me the entire time. The River has taught me what it means to be a part of the earth and has shown me the importance of habitat restoration and resource conservation. I am excited to be traveling to the Colorado River delta this April so that I may be a part of the amazing team that is working to preserve this river that is truly one of a kind.
