Happy #WorldRiversDay 2014!

Goodell Creek, WA, USA

The last Sunday of September, which happens to be today, September 28th, marks World Rivers Day:

World Rivers Day is a celebration of the world's waterways. It highlights the many values of rivers and strives to increase public awareness and encourages the improved stewardship of rivers around the world.

You can follow World Rivers Day on twitter using #WorldRiversDay:



In addition to World Rivers Day, the Northwest Film Forum is showing Return of the River, on the Elwha River dam removals in Washington State, USA. The cinematography looks to be breathtaking. One could guess that RotR takes a more thorough treatment of the Elwha Case Study than DamNation may have had time to. I just ordered my copy for my growing personal archive of Northwest river movies. Anyhow, RotR is now showing in the Northwest and is available for screening:



Hopefully films like RotR and events like World Rivers Day collectively bring more attention to the global stewardship and restoration of rivers and streams. Here's to every day being a #RiverDay!
