What could be better than great food, local wine (by Mark Wilson Vineyards), beer (ice-cold) and a room full of awesome folks who love rivers? Well, seeing you there of course! Oh, and did we mention it will be on a boat?
Join us for the 10th annual Capital River Awards as we celebrate the amazing work being done to protect rivers and promote innovative water solutions in California.
We're honoring Martha Davis and Dr. Robert Wilkinson.
Martha Davis led efforts to protect Mono Lake as the Executive Director of the Mono Lake Committee and established award-winning programs on water conservation, renewable energy, storm water capture, and recycled water at the Inland Empire Utilities Agency.
Dr. Robert Wilkinson focused his career on research and teaching at U.C. Santa Barbara on water, energy policy, and climate change. He’s become one of the most respected voices on water policy in California and one of the trainers at our River Advocacy Training School.
The Capital River Awards raises money to strengthen the voice of rivers at a critical time. Funds donated build FOR’s grassroots capacity to protect our rivers from deadbeat dams and harmful legislation. We’ll also be working to engage local decision makers, spark media attention and invite the public out to create their own memorable river experiences.
