Colorado River Day is the brainchild of Save the Colorado and Protect the Flows, organizations that are trying to keep healthy flows in the Colorado River and raise awareness of Colorado River issues and threats. Check out how this fun and educational event is shaping up in Flagstaff (July 24, 25, 27, 28 & 29) at: http://coloradoriverdaysflagstaff.tumblr.com/
Colorado River Days in Flagstaff is going to rock! Major cosponsors include Sierra Club, Museum of Northern Arizona, National Parks Conservation Association,
and Grand Canyon Trust. GCRG will have a table at the July 24th kick off, along with many other organizations.
Events throughout the week include a kickoff at Heritage Square with tables and presentations by Colorado River-oriented groups and government agencies; the song contest; premiere of the new film Watershed by the Redford Center (watershedmovie.com/) with a panel discussion at Museum of Northern Arizona; and this year’s Grand Canyon author symposium at MNA. All details can be found on the URL in the first paragraph of this email.
WHERE DO YOU COME IN?
1) Attend any and all of the events and help spread the word! Celebrate the river you love!
2) The organizers are looking to schedule more “teach in” type talks at Heritage Square on July 24th. These would be 20 minutes in length. They are looking for storytellers and fun topics to spice things up. If you are interested, please let me know and I’ll put you in touch with Alicyn Gitlin of the Sierra Club.
Thanks to the Grand Canyon River Guides Association for this information. If you love the Grand Canyon you should be a member of the GCRGA
