River Network Programs

River Network helps river enthusiasts and advocates connect to each other and great ideas, empower them to make a difference, and expand their impact locally, regionally and nationally. Our community includes 2,000 organizations and 10,000 people located throughout the U.S. (and beyond).
Our programs focus on the three most important ingredients for healthy rivers: strong champions, clean water, and ample water. Links to our resource pages on these topics are below. We also provide training and events, including River Rally, access to benefits for groups that seek support through our Partners Program, and celebrate individual achievements through our River Heroes awards.
We invite you to explore the contents of these areas of our work and get involved helping take care of our rivers today. River Network envisions a future of clean and ample water for people and nature, where local caretakers are well-equipped, effective and courageous champions for our rivers. Join us on this journey, learn about the work of our community, and contribute to solutions that help us reach this vision.
