2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the passage of theWild & Scenic River Act.
“Every River Has A Story. Every Great Adventure Story Has a River. Every River Story Includes Gear That Helped Us Make the Adventure Possible.”
It was great meeting at Outdoor Retailer. As I mentioned, we have joined forces with Jim Moss, Recreational Law to create a web platform for individuals to share their story of a meaningful river experience and the gear that made it possible. The web platform will allow individuals to post a story, note or sentence and upload a photo of the gear and the river to share. The user-generated contributions will be available on a story page for others to see and share.
Jim and I would appreciate your consideration in having your company participate. The anniversary project will run from March 1, 2018 to October 15, 2018. There are three ways your participation will help us promote this celebration project:
1. Join our growing list of sponsors
Lend your company’s name to our co-sponsor list. The logos of our co-sponsors will appear across a prominent scrolling banner at the bottom of the webpage, as well as listed in all other materials developed for distribution to the public and those who submit user content.
2. Send out one piece of gear
Donate one piece of equipment that will be awarded to a participant who submits a story. Individuals who submit a story and are approved for publication will automatically be entered into a drawing for one of the donated gear items. The winners will be announced on October 16, 2018. Winners will be asked to use the gear they won in an outdoor activity and submit photos to post via Instagram using the donating company’s hashtags and handles in their post.
3. Join us in promotion
Assist us in promoting this user-content recognition of this historic anniversary by relaying this project to your community and tribe through your social channels and direct communication. Promotion also includes placing a link to the anniversary webpage on your site during the period of time mentioned. Link and imagery will be provided.
I look forward to talking with you about this celebration and means to promote conservation of our rivers.
