- September 2013 Floods
- Pre & Post Flood Comparisons
- History of Water in Boulder County
- Current Uses
- Ditch Systems
- Lunch at Panama Reservoir
New stops for 2014 include the Highland Ditch Diversion and the Left Hand Water District Spurgeon Plant. We will also revisit a couple stops from previous years but have no worries if you’ve attended in the past, after the September 2013 Flood, the landscape no longer looks the same. There will be speakers on the bus as well as at each stop with time for questions and discussion.
Lunch is included in the $20 registration fee. Pulled Pork sandwiches + sides will be served, with a vegetarian option available.
