It's the annual National River Rally, the premier gathering of river conservation individuals and organizations in our nation. Co-sponsored by the River Network and Waterkeepers, this year's Rally is in Portland, Oregon, the ideal location as both an urban planner's delight and crossroads of two amazing rivers: the Columbia and the Willamette.
Highlighting the more than 95 workshops and River Heroes banquet are keynote speakers Robert F. Kennedy, Jr and Alexandra Cousteau. We'll even get some paddling time on the river.
ArroyoLover's Urban Rivers Institute is a River Network Partner and this will be our First River Rally, so we are especially excited! The Rally is so popular that it completely sold out on April 2nd.
We will be blogging highlights and will be tweeting @arroyolover from the Pacific Northwest's most sustainable city, so follow our news here.
