June 26 at 3 p.m. EDT – Covid-19 River Response Webinar

RMS Members and Non-Members are encouraged to register for this webinar. We will review a report which documents the emergence from lockdown and initial opening of rivers based on the input of more than 70 river managers across the United States from May 7-25, 2020. We will review and encourage discussion on the findings from the report as well as input from State River Managers, so State River Managers attending the 1 p.m. discussion are also encouraged to join.

Please reference the Covid-19 River Opening Guidance on our website to learn about common practices for commercial and private boaters as well as closures (as surveyed by Confluence Research). Dan Shelby (Confluence Research and Consulting) will lead the webinar.
