We are incredibly grateful to share some of the magic from River Rally 2017 in the July 2017 issue of River Voices. In addition to personal articles from our 2017 River Heroes, this issue includes videos of the River Heroes and Compton River Achievement Award winner’s acceptance speeches, as well as the plenaries from the conference: ‘Affordability, Equity and Drinking Water,’ ‘Rethinking Our Relationship to Urban Rivers’ and ‘Lessons from Standing Rock and Beyond.’ We hope you will find this content as educational and inspiring as we do!

Take Our Annual Trends Survey

Please take River Network’s 2017 Trends Survey. This survey helps us gather up-to-date information on perceptions about conditions, threats, progress and River Network’s value related to healthy rivers. It is designed to give us all more insight into the challenges and opportunities we face collectively. In addition, the survey results will help us identify what investment, collaboration, or education opportunities are needed to make faster progress toward healthy rivers.

It should only take you a few minutes to complete. Click here to begin. Thank you in advance for participating.

The results of last year’s survey can be found in our 2016 Trends Report.
