World Rivers Day (Fourth Sunday of September)

22 September 2020 –

“Rivers are the arteries of our planet; they are lifelines in the truest sense.” ~ Mark Angelo

World Rivers Day is a celebration of the world’s waterways. Running since 2005, it highlights the many values of rivers and strives to increase public awareness and hopefully encourage the improved stewardship of rivers around the world. Rivers in every country face an array of threats, and only our active involvement will ensure their health in the years ahead. World Rivers Day organizers encourage all of us to come out and participate. In particular, consider starting a Rivers Day event of our own, which might range from a stream cleanup to a community riverside celebration.
