River Rally 2017 Registration is Now Open

Join us in Grand Rapids, Michigan from May 8-11 for River Rally 2017.

This year’s conference program is super-charged for impact. In the midst of a crisis related to climate risk, drinking water contamination, and access to water, we will be asking some hard questions. How do we respond, how do we grow our community, and how do we inspire the next generation? River Rally 2017 will help us define what is possible, individually and collectively.

River Rally is the place to connect with people who care about rivers and water. Join NGO staff, academics, agency and foundation representatives, industry innovators, and community leaders from across the U.S. and beyond. New this year, the first ever Teen River Rally will bring more than 50 high school students from the Grand Rapids area to River Rally for a day to learn about career pathways in conservation.

River Rally is three days of learning, inspiration, and fun! Beyond content-rich workshops and keynotes, we offer field trips, mentoring sessions, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, morning yoga, an open mic talent show, and the 2017 River Heroes Banquet and Awards Ceremony.

Impact Story: Keys to Fundraising Success

Atchafalaya Basinkeeper was a successful organization, but too much of the group’s time was spent protecting their watershed that very little went into securing their budget from one year to the next.
