Raise the River

A unique binational partnership committed to restoring the Colorado River delta

The Raise the River coalition has worked with policymakers, water agencies, and governmental representatives from the U.S. and Mexico since 2012 to cooperatively create historic change for the Colorado River Delta for the benefit of the people and the enhancement of wildlife in the Delta. Members include: The Nature Conservancy, National Audubon Society, Pronatura Noroeste, The Redford Center, Restauremos El Colorado, and the Sonoran Institute.

Water, which is so precious, it doesn’t come like it used to.

The Redford Center supported the formation of Raise the River as a result of working on our 2012 feature film WATERSHED, which tells the story of the threats to the Colorado River, and offers hopeful solutions for the American West.
