Dolores River Boating Advocates promotes responsible recreational use and balanced flow management of the Dolores River, while working to protect the watershed for the health of the natural environment and the livelihood of future generations. They envision the river and surrounding landscape with permanent protection as part of BLM’s National Conservation Lands, supporting whitewater boating, and providing habitat for the native species in a way that balances the needs of all stakeholders. DRBA was formed in 2012 in response to concerns about the ecological and recreational values of the Dolores River. Based in southwest Colorado, they work to protect and enhance the environmental and recreational integrity of the river through advocacy, stewardship, partnerships and outreach. The group representing boating enthusiasts, conservationists, and people who simply love the river and is a source for Dolores River boating and conservation information.
