Colorado State University
Tri River Area
The mission of Colorado State University Extension is "to provide information and education, and encourage the application of research-based knowledge in response to local, state, and national issues affecting individuals, youth, families, agricultural enterprises, and communities of Colorado."
The Tri River Area is comprised of four counties (Delta, Mesa, Montrose, and Ouray) and three major rivers (Uncompahgre, Gunnison, and Colorado). Elevation ranges from approximately 4400 to over 14,000 feet with most of the agronomic crops grown in two irrigated valleys (Uncompahgre and Grand). There are approximately 160,000 irrigated acres in the two valleys. The remaining area is comprised of primarily cow/calf operations. The majority of the population reside in the Uncompahgre and Grand Valleys which contain the three main cities of Grand Junction, Delta, and Montrose.
The Tri River Area Advisory Committee is made up of residents of all four of our assigned counties. They would like to hear of your thoughts on how our staff can be more effective in the areas listed below. Please feel free to contact them.
