This guide provides valuable information for those involved in the Colorado River Brock Experience. It includes references and links to Greenwood Library materials (books, ebooks, journals, databases, streaming videos, audiobooks) relevant to the course.


Access to water—whether for drinking, recreation, or power generation—is one of the most pervasive problems in the country, and present in every community. Students who study water access issues along the Colorado River will trek from its headwaters in the Rocky Mountains National Park to its domestic terminus in Arizona, meeting with the farmers, residents, business owners, and preservationists who depend on the nation’s 5th largest river for survival and prosperity. Along the way, they will learn about the rich history of the river and the factors that threaten its continued existence—all the while considering similar issues in their home communities.
