Water in Colorado – We’re in this together.

Join us at Headwaters Center for the third presentation in our River Journey Speaker Series. Prepare to be intrigued, enjoy interesting conversation, and bring a friend! Cash bar available.

Mely Whiting is a self-described “recovering water lawyer” with almost 30 years of experience in Colorado representing local, state and federal government as well as private entities.  She has worked for Trout Unlimited for the past 12 years, spending much of her time first fighting against Denver Water and Northern to protect the Fraser and Colorado Rivers and then working with them to fix the rivers.

Mely has recently been appointed to the Intrastate Basin Compact Committee (IBCC) by Governor Polis, is a member of the Southwest Basin Roundtable and the Southwest U.S. Forest Service Regional Advisory Committee (RAC), and is co-chair of the local group known as Learning by Doing (LBD).
