River Summary: The Green River is a 730-mile long river that flows through Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah. It is known for its beautiful canyons and unique geology. The river was first explored by John Wesley Powell in 1869 and was a major transportation route for Native Americans and settlers. The river is fed by numerous tributaries and is known for its hydroelectric power potential. There are several reservoirs and dams along the river, including Flaming Gorge Dam, which was completed in 1964 and provides irrigation water for agriculture and recreational opportunities such as boating and fishing. The Green River is also popular for whitewater rafting, hiking, and camping. The river is critical for agriculture in the region, providing water for crops such as hay, alfalfa, and wheat.
