Quality of Life

The Colorado River contributes to the quality of life for Latinos in the Colorado River basin states in many different ways. Latino families use the river for fishing, boating and swimming and have picnics and camp in the many parks that exist along the river. 

A 2012 poll of Latino voters in Nevada, Colorado and Arizona found that more than 90 percent of Latino voters believe it is important that the government “help protect our community's rivers and lakes for family recreation and the overall well-being of the environment.”
