From the Rocky Mountains through seven states and Mexico, the Colorado River is the artery of the desert southwest. Its canyons, ecology and heritage render an international treasure. However, ignorance, greed and complacency are robbing the Colorado of its ability to sustain life.

Mr. Weisheit has a long history of advocacy for rivers in the Southwest, both from a natural history perspective and as a leader in the outdoor industry. He serves on the boards of Utah Guides and Outfitters, Colorado Plateau River Guides, Headwaters Institute and the Sierra Club Glen Canyon Group. With two co-authors, John has written a book called Cataract Canyon: A Human and Environmental History of the Rivers in Canyonlands. The Waterkeeper Alliance designated John as your Colorado Riverkeeper in October of 2002.
