Friends of the Yampa's mission is to protect and enhance the environmental and recreational integrity of the Yampa River and its tributaries, through stewardship, advocacy, education and partnerships.
Established in 1981, we have a long standing history of working to develop wide support for a healthy Yampa River that supports a vibrant, diverse economy and is accessible for all to enjoy.Today, the Yampa River and its tributaries remain a model of a healthy river system, not only here in northwest Colorado but in the entire Colorado basin and the western United States. In a world where most rivers have been dammed, diverted and dewatered, the Yampa River still remains intact, supporting a diverse riverine and terrestrial environment while allowing for multiple recreational and consumptive uses.
