This summer, we’re travelling throughout the Western United States, and more specifically, the Colorado River Basin, to begin work on The Colorado River, Re-Storied.
The Colorado River Re-Storied is a collection of “stories of place” shared by individuals with direct experience–or distant love–of the Colorado River. The project seeks to “re-story” the landscape of the Southwest by helping to describe, re-store, and sustain the hidden or lost cultural practices and treasures of the Colorado River Basin.
