Successful Meeting

The Animas Valley Action Coalition (AVAC) held its second meeting, Rally for Our Valley, on April 29, 2023 starting with a Slide Show of the Animas Valley. Approximately 60 residents attended.

A Valley resident gave history of the area. An Animas Riverkeeper with the San Juan Citizens Alliance advocated for protecting and restoring the river’s health, ensuring safe, reliable access for recreation, and promoting transparent and responsible water management. There is not a lot of access along the river and what is available is loved to death. The river access is about 1.5 acres of land with a 10-mile gap to the next exit/ access point, Oxbow Park. Should this access point be eliminated, the only other
access point is near Silverton.
