March 14 - International Day of Action for Rivers

Posted on March 14, 2020

Today is about dam removal and river restoration. It's a day of river clean-up and of examining local and national policies that help - or harm! - rivers and the living things in and around rivers. It's a day of activism - demanding anti-pollution laws and environmental justice.

Here is the official website. Notice that this year's Day of Action for Rivers has a special theme: Women, Water, and Climate Change.

To find a riverbasin that needs help, a campaign that needs support, check RiverNet.

Find educational resources on rivers here and here.

Check out this short video about a river I once visited as it began its recovery after dams were removed.
