Since 1972 the Crystal River Environmental Protection Association (CVEPA) has been fighting for the water, land, air and rural and wilderness culture of the Crystal River Valley. Although we are a small, volunteer organization with no paid staff, we have an impressive history of fighting to protect the incredible environment surrounding us, including stopping a downhill ski area above Marble, helping oversee the reclamation of a major coal mine, stopping a major dam that would have destroyed the upper Crystal Valley, and working to make sure the public has access to the national lands around the valley. We would welcome you to join us if our mission matches yours. Dues are $20 per year. Just fill out the form below with your name and address and we'll send you the membership form.
