Help us purchase water rights along the Colorado so we can achieve the water levels that will reconnect the River to the Gulf of California. With our non-profit partners at the Environmental Defense Fund, The Nature Conservancy, Pronatura Noroeste, and the Sonoran Institute, we’ve developed a Water Trust to protect these water rights, and devote them to conservation in perpetuity. Donate today!

Help combat water waste.

Make a personal water conservation pledge of 5% as symbol of the small amount of the rivers’ flow required to reconnect the river to its delta. Here’s how!

[ ]  Take shorter showers

[ ]  Fix all leaks

[ ]  Meatless Mondays

[ ]  Harvest the rain

[ ]  Try xeriscaping and xerigardening

[ ]  Buy local, organic and drygrown

[ ]  Install low flow appliances

[ ]  Know your water footprint

In the short term, bringing the Delta back to life will require at least 50,000 acre-feet of water.  This will restore annual base flows and at current prices it will cost approximately $15 million to permanently secure this amount of water. Ultimately, these acquisitions will allow the Water Trust to help restore and maintain more than 80,000 acres of wetland and riparian areas in the Delta.

We are partnering with the Sonoran Institute to process all donations, which are 100% tax deductible and make real a difference.

Thank you for whatever support you can lend.
