Mission Statement

Headwaters Alliance cultivates a sustainable environmental and economic future for the Rio Grande Headwaters through community engagement, restoration, education, and innovation.

Organization History

Headwaters Alliance was established in 2016 primarily to further and deepen the work of the Willow Creek Reclamation Committee (WCRC). WCRC was formed in the late 1990's by a small group of Mineral County residents who wanted to retain independence and determination in how to clean up a small mountain stream from the decades long impact of mining in Creede. Twenty years later, WCRC is proud of its achievement in implementing numerous projects within the watershed to reclaim, cleanup and restore many sites. And yet there is still more to do - both for Willow Creek and the entire upper Rio Grande basin of Mineral County. Headwaters Alliance was formed to provide vision, formalized 501C3 structure and leadership in implementing projects that beneficially impact the upper Rio Grande watershed through on-going partnerships with WCRC, other Creede and Mineral Country organizations and community members both local and global.

Testimonials

Testimonial - Edith Ward
I am so grateful to the Headwaters Alliance for working tirelessly to protect the Rio Grande headwaters. I believe that through their efforts I'll be able to enjoy this amazing land for years to come!

Testimonial - Bethany Talley
I am a direct recipient of the work of the Headwaters Alliance. Their work on the Willow Creek multi use trail means my home is connected to Creede's main street, which allows me to bike, walk, or run to work. The trail allows my family to remain a single car family which is a priority in my home.
