The mission of the Left Hand Watershed Center is to assess, protect, and restore Left Hand Watershed and serve as a resource for other watersheds using a collaborative, science based approach.
Established in 2005, we have strong roots in our community and we are led by a diverse board of enthusiastic stakeholders. We value science and community, and embrace these values to implement on-the-ground projects. While we maintain our roots in Left Hand Creek Watershed, we strive to apply our locally-developed tools regionally for the benefit of all Front Range watersheds and communities.
Now, four years' post-expansion, our board has decided to grow again, using our successful management system and business model to have a greater impact regionally. Today, we continue to maintain our roots in Left Hand Creek Watershed, while also applying our locally developed tools regionally for the benefit of all Front Range watersheds and communities.
