#RiverWitness is your way to protect and connect with your rivers. #RiverWitness brings us together, despite the need to be physically distant this year, in taking action for and showing appreciation of our rivers. It’s an opportunity for you to get creative and engage online by sharing your photos, videos, and stories of what you witness when you visit or connect with your rivers. What are you seeing? How does it make you feel? Your images will be added to a beautiful mosaic showing our community of river witnesses (see below).
Show the dirty truth of trash in our rivers and the need for trash solutions. Help show the problem to help solve the problem. This year, the Source to Sea Cleanup will take place throughout the month of September. Use the #RiverWitness hashtag when you post on social media about helping clean up trash in and along your rivers. Share your #RiverWitness posts during the Source to Sea Cleanup month (September) or any time of year. You can use the #RiverWitness hashtag even if you aren’t right by the river, because no matter where you clean up trash, you are helping to keep our rivers clean. Not on social media? No problem. Submit your images below. Not sure where to clean up? Check out this map of trashy sites in need of adoption.
Your #RiverWitness posts will be shared by Connecticut River Conservancy to a wider river community. Select images will be used to call on decision-makers to enact trash solutions to keep trash out of our rivers. Show them this is important to you. Speak up for your rivers.
Your rivers need you and your voice makes a difference.
