Just wanted to inform everyone of an easy opportunity to help restore our local watersheds. This is a voluntary tax check off on your state income tax return. One of the 2009 projects that has been awarded a grant is a sediment reduction project at Hecla ( browns canyon takeout) and there are many others. A few dollars out of your pocket can make a big difference for local groups...
COLORADO HEALTHY RIVERS FUND
A Voluntary Tax Check-Off Program Supporting Local Restoration Projects
- value clean, pure drinking water?
- care about preserving fish and wildlife?
- want to leave a legacy of healthy rivers for your children?
As a concerned citizen, you are likely aware of the Colorado State Income Tax check-off funds. It's a great opportunity to donate a portion of your tax refund to a good cause. The Healthy Rivers Fund (formerly the Watershed Protection Fund) needs your help! As a critical source of funding available to 71 community-based conservation groups across the state, it has enabled 41watershed improvement projects since 2003. For more information, please visit the Colorado Watershed Assembly's website: http://www.coloradowater.org/cwpf.php
When filing your taxes this season, don't forget about water, one of our most valuable natural resources. Contributing to The Healthy Rivers Fund is easy - simply write in the amount you wish to donate on Line 39 in the Checkoff for Colorado section of Form 104.
The future generations of Coloradans will thank you for your commitment to improving our precious environment.
