Details: June 27th, 2022 to July 1st, 2022 The Wellspring Project is a 5-day summer program for middle school students that will address the complexities of the Colorado River and provide participants with the opportunity to respond artistically to that experience. Through field experiences, an overnight river trip, and interactions with stakeholders interested in how the Colorado River is allocated and protected, students will engage in a myriad of opportunities and learn more about this valuable resource. By engaging youth in this project, we hope to build a foundation of heightened awareness and create a wellspring of ideas and conversations that will carry on the important work that will be needed to care for and preserve one of our very foundations of life.
