Being a conservationist and devoting your life to water isn’t easy or lucrative. It’s really hard work. Being a part of this community is a big part of how we sustain our own energy and hope while doing this work. River Rally is fun, and you need to find the fun in this work because often there are big challenges that make the work quite overwhelming. It’s amazing to be part of a community of like-minded people from across the country.
