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.
July 2018 Issue of River Voices
Welcome to the July 2018 edition of River Voices. Learn about the four key issues that will unite our network in collaborative work over the next 5 years, meet River Network’s President Nicole Silk, and (yes, already!) read our call for River Rally 2019 workshop proposals. Plus, find funding, search jobs, and share the Water Protectors Map with your community. Read the issue.
River Network’s NEW searchable water protectors map helps communities and local water supporters connect. Search it, link to it, share it, and embed it on any website! Plus find designated Wild & Scenic Rivers across the U.S. (If your water organization is not already on the map, sign up for a free River Network membership to be included.)
River Network created the River Heroes Award in 2001 to recognize and celebrate individuals whose efforts to protect and restore their local rivers and waters have been extraordinary in scope, scale, impact and heart. “Everyone needs a hero to inspire us to dream bigger, to do more, and to never give up,” says Nicole Silk, President of River Network. Read about this year’s winners.
In early 2017, River Network started a two-year project in Colorado to grow the number of local coalitions that are interested, ready and capable of undertaking comprehensive Stream Management Plans in alignment with the state’s recently adopted water plan. Learn more.
