Let the Journey Begin

Why Join?


The Rivers are Life movement takes us on a journey along our planet’s rivers and freshwater ecosystems in ways never seen before. Our invitation to you is not to be a part of a group or social club, but rather to join us as we collectively view rivers through a new lens. It’s an invitation to get your hands dirty, learn from other River Heroes who have made it their mission to restore our rivers to their natural state, and empower everyone to explore and support these vital ecosystems with us by sharing in their struggles as well as their successes.
