National River Rally to be held June 3-6 in South Carolina

The National River Rally will be held June 3–6 in North Charleston, South Carolina. According to the River Network, which organizes the event, at the rally attendees will have the opportunity to learn the best strategies for river restoration; test and help improve the newest tools and technologies for watershed protection; deliver and discuss critical information from the field and from Washington, DC; and interact with a diverse community of organizations, agencies, tribes and businesses working to connect the water, lands and communities.

This year’s rally will focus on creating stronger connections to various federal agencies and building closer relationships with different constituencies such as land groups, environmental justice organizations and others who have a similar stake in clean, abundant water, according to the River Network website.

The event’s workshops will cover issues such as water, energy and climate flow; land trusts and river groups; restoration and protection; and legislation and policy. For more information on the National River Rally, visit rivernetwork.org/rally.
