Highlights From Wild And Scenic Hill Week
The Wild and Scenic Rivers Coalition set out to advocate in Washington DC for rivers the week of March 6th. Approximately 40 coalition members were able to divide and conquer, ultimately meeting with more than 80 congressional offices, promoting 16 different campaigns. American Rivers is a founding member and an active participant in the coalition. It was a full and successful week and as individuals embarked on their journeys home to varying states, the resounding message remains on Capitol Hill- For the rivers!
