1. Raise Awareness.
  2. Raise Money.
  3. Raise the River.

The Colorado River Delta was once a lush region covering over 3,000 square miles, teeming with plant, bird and marine life. But a century of dams and diversions to supply water to farms, cities and industries have reduced the Delta to a remnant of its former self — it no longer even regularly reaches the Gulf of California.

In the last decade however, periodic floods and innovative on-the-ground restoration efforts involving local communities have shown that a little bit of water can go a long way toward bringing the Delta ecosystem back to life. Raise the River will accelerate these binational efforts, and build momentum to eventually reconnect the river to the Gulf.

Robert Redford, Will Ferrell and Kelly Slater have teamed up to help raise the river, demonstrating how together, we can reconnect the Colorado and bring back life to the Delta.
