The Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park in Yuma is home to a new library dedicated to protecting the history of the Colorado River.

It took decades, and a series of dams, lakes, irrigation systems and political maneuvering to harness the water of the mighty Colorado River and direct it all over the Western states.   

Now, you can see the river’s history by stepping inside the new Colorado River Research Library, only a few steps away from the banks of the river itself.

The inaugural KAWC Spirited Discussions forum will feature newly elected Mayor of Yuma, Douglas J. Nicholls, at 5 pm on Thursday, February 13, at River City Grill, 600 W 3rd Street.  Mayor Nicholls will be discussing his priorities for the city and his early observations since taking office. 

River City Grill, the host venue for the first Spirited Discussions forum, will have a cash bar available, as well as appetizers, in keeping with the relaxed nature of the event.
