Great Old Broads for Wilderness will host “Rivers for Resilience,” a day of fun stewardship, education and community action event to protect and preserve the Animas River, starting at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Santa Rita Park Pavilion.

The day begins with a talk from San Juan Citizens Alliance Riverkeeper Sara Burch about the importance and value of intact, protected watersheds, especially in a time of climate change. This will be followed by a river cleanup with Broads staff members and partners. T-shirts, latex gloves, and trash bags and a brown-bag lunch will be provided. Participants should bring work gloves, water and sunscreen.

There will be a film screening of “The Colorado Problem: The River in the Red,” which explores the relationship between climate change and the fate of the Colorado River Basin at 5:30 p.m. at Fort Lewis College. The film will be followed by a question-and-answer discussion with local conservation experts who will share how the Durango community can get involved as climate activists.

Rivers for Resilience is free and open to all ages, ability levels, and understanding of climate change and watersheds.
