#DefendRivers with the Alabama Rivers Alliance on July 8!

The #DefendRivers paddle and campaign engages people across Alabama in raising awareness of water issues and communicating their significance to state elected officials and those seeking to become elected officials. This year, the paddle will be held on Saturday, July 8. This annual event provides an opportunity for citizens to *float* their message directly to Alabama’s policy makers and elected officials.


We invite everyone – no matter age or paddling experience! – to join us on the Alabama River in Montgomery for a quick and exciting trip with community members and friends. We will celebrate the natural beauty while insisting our rivers are protected.
