Conservation Program Update


Beginning in January 2021, HCA convened six committees to review methodology and data from the 2019 Blue River Report Card. Each committee focused on one of the indicators of health for the Blue River including Community Connections, Water Quality, Governance, Recreation, Habitat and Development. 37 volunteers representing 35 partner organizations contributing time and resources to serve on the 2021 Report Card Committees. The Blue River Report Card and the Blue River Action Plan will be updated with the research following stakeholder feedback. Plans are on track for the updated documents to be published in the first quarter of 2022.
