Host: SYRCL

Location: Nevada City

Join Rivers for Change at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival for a presentation about their 12 Rivers in 2012 campaign.

Rivers for Change: 12 Rivers in 2012

To build a better picture of California rivers in their entirety, Danielle Katz and John Dye set out to travel the length of 12 California Rivers from source to sea in one year. The purpose was to marry high adventure with a conservation message and build continuity among communities along their watersheds. A group of kayakers and photographers comprised the headwaters team to tackle the class V waters of the upper rivers. Another group, including Katz and Dye joined in to complete the lower reaches. Along the way, the groups collected citizen science data, shared paddle days with communities and documented their travels. Join Katz and Dye as they present the challenges and triumphs of their journey: Racing to float on rivers that were quickly drying up during a drought year, balancing the efforts of data collection with traveling on a schedule,encountering water unsafe for swimming and mysteries of disappearing rivers.
