Inspiring the Next Generation

The long-term success of riverside restoration is dependent on community engagement in these river systems and awareness about the associated challenges they face. As such, a key component of RiversEdge West's work is educating youth and adults about the importance of riverside lands and providing meaningful opportunities for people to steward them into the future.
