DefendRivers photos from 2017’s paddle

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 5th annual #DefendRivers paddle in 2017!  We had more than 100 people to introduce our Alliance to Governor Ivey and highlight the importance of protecting the rivers throughout the state with a water management plan to ensure our rivers are flowing and our water is sustained for future generations.

“The Alabama Rivers Alliance is excited to be in Montgomery to introduce our Alliance to Governor Ivey and her administration,” Cindy Lowry, Alabama Rivers Alliance’s executive director, said. “Water is the most essential element of life and there is no greater priority for government and citizens alike than to protect our water resources. Water is crucial for drinking and also for our state’s economy in the Gulf, our wildlife in our rivers and our recreation throughout the state.”
