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.
River Network released our 2020 trends report called Our Water, Our Future: State of River and Watershed Protection in December 2020. The report outlines current conditions of waterways in the U.S. including opportunities and threats to water quality and quantity, and provides an analysis of the diversity of the workforce within the river and watershed protection community. This report builds on River Network’s first trends report, released in May 2016. For more on what we learned from respondents, read President Nicole Silk’s latest blog post or download the report below.
River Network’s new Community-Led Research Toolkit for Equitable Climate Resilience provides step-by-step guidance and lessons learned on how to effectively engage with community members to understand climate impacts and to develop more equitable climate resilience strategies.
This toolkit also has real-world Community-Led Research case studies, a Community-Led Research Project Planning and Facilitation Guide, and extensive lists of references and resources.
River Network’s searchable water protectors map helps communities and local water supporters connect. Search it, link to it, share it, and embed it on any website! (If your water organization is not already on the map, sign up for a free River Network membership to be included.)
