Celebrated on the fourth Sunday in September, World Rivers Day highlights the values of rivers and strives to increase public awareness and encourage improved stewardship of waterways around the world.
“Rivers are the arteries of our planet; they are lifelines in the truest sense.”
- Mark Angelo, founder of World Rivers Day
As we reflect on the importance of rivers to our ecosystem and as a vital natural resource, we salute those hydrologists, environmental researchers, activists, and others who work every day to protect rivers by addressing key issues, such as:
- Declining fish populations
- Threats from pollution, deforestation in watersheds, drought, and invasive species
- Climate change
