Hiding out in some mountains, by some lakes and rivers for a few days

But hope those of you in New York get a chance to see “The River Why” Friday night, Aug 27, at 7:30 pm at the Tribeca Cinemas.  Also, on Saturday, “Greenlit”  screens – a great/funny documentary about how we tried to make “The River Why” as green as possible on our limited budget.  Produced by our co-production partner, Ambush Entertainment and directed by Miranda Bailey.

I’ll be doing some thinking on my trip and was wondering…..what do you think are the most pressing issues facing river and/or fish conservation these days?  If all of a sudden, you found yourself on a national podium, what would you want to talk about?

Let me know.  I’ll be back sometime next week.

ciao for now,

One of our partners on the special benefit screening of “The River Why” last June, California Trout, has come up with a pretty amazing way to spread the word that “Cold, clean, fresh water is the most important resource of the 21st century and that fish are the best indicator of a healthy watershed.”

Shannon Moon, the Outreach Manager for California Trout, is going to bicycle 1400 miles across California to deliver this important message.  I worked with Shannon on our special event in June and she is one great, energetic, fun and committed lady.  Please lend your support to her great cause!
