Friends of the River’s
of the River (FOR) is pleased to announce the Capital
River Awards to celebrate our treasured rivers
and promote their protection. This festive event is a great chance to re-connect with old friends and
make some new ones over great food and wine just steps from the Capitol. The party will follow FOR’s California Rivers Day
at the Capitol—a day of education, outreach, and activism promoting rivers and
Our goal this year is to raise at least $30,000. Your support will go toward organizing the California Rivers Day at the Capitol and fund FOR’s grassroots campaign to protect our rivers from deadbeat dams. This effort will generate thousands of emails and postcards calling on Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to protect rivers threatened by dams and inviting her to join us on a river trip to see one of these rivers first hand. We’ll also be organizing river trips for decision makers, generating dozens of stories in the media, and organizing many other events and activities that will get the public out to the river to learn more about our work and get involved.
All sponsorships will receive recognition on event signage as well as prominent mention on FOR's website and in our on-line newsletter, The River Advocate.
