The mission of the YVSICT is to protect and enhance water quality, trout habitat and riparian areas of the Yampa Valley and adjacent drainages in northwest Colorado, and to educate the public and enhance awareness of environmental water issues. The YVSICT has implemented this mission statement over the past 38 years, each year building upon successful projects which have preceded. The YVSICT has worked successfully with local, state and federal governments, as well as other non-profits and local entities. The YVSICT looks forward to future stewardship projects.
