Outdoors news, notes and other random tidbits

Roaring Fork Conservancy is pleased to announce the publication of its 2006 Roaring Fork Watershed Water Quality Report, a synopsis of water quality data collected by Stream Team volunteers, River Watch schools, and Roaring Fork Conservancy staff over the past several years at 24 stations watershedwide. Overall, the Roaring Fork Watershed has high water quality in its rivers and streams. However, the report sheds light on some streams that need attention: Brush Creek, Fourmile Creek, Cattle Creek and the lower Crystal River. Using this information Roaring Fork Conservancy will partner with other organizations to study these impacted streams and determine how best to improve the water quality. Read the 2006 Roaring Fork Watershed Water Quality Report online at http://www.roaringfork.org/publications or stop by the offices in Basalt for a copy.
