The CPCESU Portal for the
Conservation Registry

This website is the CPCESU’s doorway to the Conservation Actions Registry. It is a way for the CPCESU partners to enter and search for projects which were entered through this portal and that are within the geographical boundaries of what is recognized as the Colorado Plateau. Currently, this portal hosts the San Juan River Basin Stream, River, and Riparian Restoration Projects Database. This repository of projects was gathered through 2008-2009 and lists and maps many restoration projects in the basin. Check back on a regular basis as this database is updated regularly. In the near future a feature allowing for multiple partners to enter projects straight into the database will become available. At that point we will encourage all relevant parties to enter their projects making this database ever growing and updated.
