River Rally

Thanks for another amazing River Rally! Stay tuned for more information on River Rally 2022, coming soon.

Hosted annually by River Network, River Rally provides an inspiring and energy-infused touchpoint for nonprofit groups from across the U.S. and beyond, as well as for agency and foundation representatives, industry innovators, philanthropists, academics, students, and community leaders. We bring thought leaders and practitioners together to accelerate progress towards an equitable and sustainable water future.

In 2021, we went virtual for the second time! Our second virtual River Rally included over 50 hours of live content across six themes, 25 additional on-demand learning opportunities, and brought together 450 registrants, presenters, sponsors, and other partners. River Rally 2021, featured practical content contributed from across the country, another incredible awards panel, mentorship opportunities, and peer-to-peer engagement on the issues that matter most to the network.

“At this time, it is so difficult to feel connected to your colleagues and to your community. [River Rally] offered opportunities not just to learn, but to connect with people, acknowledge the crises impacting our society, and think through ways to incorporate these needs into our work.”
