  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Colorado River Alliance (Alliance) is to secure the vitality of the Texas Colorado River through education and advocacy for all generations.

  • Overview:
  • The Alliance, based in Austin, Texas, is the only nonprofit organization dedicated solely to the conservation and protection of the Texas Colorado River. The Alliance has been increasing awareness of the Colorado River’s environmental and economic importance since its inception in 1994. We provide, conduct and support environmental science and outdoor education programs for youth, facilitate river and creek cleanups, and engage stakeholders to promote the health of the Colorado River.

  • History:
  • The Colorado River Alliance leads programming for youth at the Wilkerson Center for Colorado River Education at Redbud Center in West Austin. Owned by Lower Colorado River Alliance, the five-acre riverside grounds feature exhibits that teach the history and importance of the Texas Colorado River. Interactive water features reveal how flooding and water supply is managed by the Highland Lakes and dams system. Rainwater harvesting and storm water management systems demonstrate how water can be conserved and protected. The grounds are open to the public free of charge. Youth programming provided by the Colorado River Alliance includes grounds exploration and led activities.
