Wild Rivers Night - What a Great Time!
We'd like to send a huge thank you to everyone that made it out for Wild Rivers Night and a big apology to everyone that didn't (because it was awesome)!
The debut of our latest Middle Fork film must have inspired everyone who watched it, as the audience seemed captivated by the gorgeous scenery, crystal-clear water, splashy rafting footage and lots of camp camaraderie. Thank you so much to Nate Herbeck of Sheer Madness Productions for creating this special film.
American Rivers was on hand to celebrate the Year of the River with short films by Andy Maser. Two major dam removals on the White Salmon River and the Elwha River had the crowd cheering for Wild Rivers!
Special emphasis was placed on the Chetco River as it is currently under serious mining threats despite being classified as "Wild and Scenic".
We couldn't have held this event without the graciousness of KEEN! Your generous staff and amazing event space made everyone feel right at home. You are a company that we are proud to support (and just check Janda's closet if you ever doubt our loyalty to your shoes)!
And lastly, thanks so much to our good friends at Sierra Nevada Brewery for donating their sweet, delicious beer for the event.
ECHO guides took care of the crowd with Rick Lumagui at the bar and Tate Higgins as Food-Dude. Thanks guys!
