Paul is the 5th generation of the Bruchez family to farm and ranch in Colorado. He currently operates the family ranch near Kremmling with his brother and father. Paul and his family raise cattle and irrigate with water from the Colorado River, the Williams Fork River and Reeder Creek. Working in agriculture and being a fishing guide has given Paul a unique perspective on water resources. He is currently spearheading a 12-mile restoration of the Colorado River with 12 landowners collaborating to sustain agriculture and the environmental health of the river.
Paul has worked closely with the Colorado Basin Roundtable for a decade, he serves as a Governor appointee to the Interbasin Compact Committee, is on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Water Trust, and serves on the Grand County Open Lands, Rivers and Trails Advisory Committee.
