World Rivers Day is September 26

In 2005 British Columbia (Canada) and UN agencies initiated World Rivers Day. Observations in 2010 will span from Canada to South Africa, as river stewards share awareness upstream/downstream, river-to-river and across oceans. This outreach matches No Water No Life’s Mission to connect scientists with stakeholders and foster partnerships throughout its 6 case-study watersheds -
and beyond.
