Check out the information across this page, and enjoy the 2019 River Rally Photo Gallery to see what you’ve been missing.


“The conference was terrific. Substantive, engaging, welcoming, broad-thinking, bold in its address of underlying humanness… As a newcomer, this was a great way of getting to know, and become a part of, our community.

-David Brotman, Friends of the N. Fork Shenandoah River
