Colorado River Conference at the University of Colorado June 8-10

I'm headed for the conference which is called "Navigating the Future of the Colorado River Basin." It's put together by the Natural Resources Law Center at the the law school. Pat Mulroy, whose interview we just posted, will be the keynote speaker, so here's a chance to get a preview. Doug Kenney, Director of Center's Western Water Policy Program, whose speech is also posted here, will be a key figure in the conference. The conference promises to be intense and, I'm sure, will stir up a little controversy. One of my journalistic colleagues, John Fleck of the Albuquerque Journal, will be commenting on a panel titled "Rethinking the Current Path."  In the future, we'll be posting interviews with some of the participants.
