River Reflections

River Reflections is a series of virtual panel discussions facilitated by Colorado River Alliance centered around themes of water, the environment, education, and other topics relating to the Texas Colorado River.

Through these free online events, Texans across the river basin learn how water impacts every part of our lives, from culture and recreation to ecology and the economy. Each River Reflections discussion includes a 45-min moderated discussion with our featured guest speaker(s), and a 15-min live Q&A session with attendees.

Join us at noon on the 4th Thursday of each month as we keep the conversations flowing. Follow us on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter to stay on top of the latest events.
