Before, during and after our expedition, we had the pleasure of meeting a wide variety of community members, journalists, recreational users, scholars, artists and Powell enthusiasts throughout the Colorado River Basin. Our conversations discussed public lands, water policy issues, indigenous communities, art, science, history and the future of the Colorado River Basin for the next 150 years. We are incredibly grateful for the open dialogue about a myriad of important issues with regards to Water in the West.
