Field Researchers Studying Colorado River

DENVER (AP) – Two field researchers are embarking on a four-month trip to study the Colorado River.

The trip is scheduled to start Tuesday in Wyoming’s Wind River Range and will go all the way to the delta and the Sea of Cortez.

Will Stauffer-Norris and Zak Podmore plan to study the river basin and how its use, restoration and sustainability will affect future generations.

Their research will be included as part of this year’s Colorado College State of the Rockies Project which aims to increase understanding of environmental issues affecting the Rocky Mountain region.
