A Busy Week for the Rivers Institute!

On Tuesday October 13th, a group of representatives of the Rivers Institute gathered at Cox Arboretum for a reception, where we accepted a grant from the Great Dayton Conservation Fund (GDCF) to expand our river education and recreation outreach programs in the Dayton area. A big thanks to Emily Klein for writing the grant proposal and to all those who contribute to the GDCF. We look forward to bringing more people to the river and the river to more people, over the next two years!

It's also Environmental Science Week at UD and you'll be able to find the River Stewards on Thursday Oct. 15th in Humanities Plaza, where they will have a River Awareness Table set-up from noon to 4pm. UD students will have the chance to sign up for a Friday river clean-up with the Stews and then participate in a kayak fun day on Saturday at Eastwood MetroPark. Hope to see ya there!
