Tri River Area CSU Extension - To provide information, education and to encourage the application of research-based knowledge to the communities of Delta, Mesa, Montrose, and Ouray Counties.

The Tri River Area (TRA) is comprised of four counties (Delta, Mesa, Montrose, and Ouray) and three major rivers (Uncompahgre, Gunnison, and Colorado). There are approximately 160,000 irrigated acres in the TRA. The majority of the population resides in the four main cities of Grand Junction, Delta, Montrose and Ouray.

Online Land Stewardship Program!

The Land Stewardship badge program includes seven courses, each designed in recognition of our collective responsibility to retain the quality of our land, air, water and biodiversity, and to manage resources in a way that protects and conserves their value.
