Remembering Bunny Sterin

The RMS family lost a dear friend on August 29, 2021. Long-time RMS member, multiple chapter officer, unofficial photographer, and friend Bunny Sterin had to take a back seat to her courageous battle with lung cancer.


Board votes on important updates to member benefits, dues

The RMS Board met for its first annual in-person meeting since 2019 in Loma, Colorado in October. Although some attended virtually, the meeting was very productive. Those who were able to attend in person were later joined by the Southwest Chapter for an incredible Board and Chapter trip on the Colorado River. Highlights from the meeting include the extraordinary growth of RMS programs, nearly doubling membership, and accolades from external groups on the quality of the training offered by the River Training Center.


French Broad partners’ float energizes regional efforts

By Bekah Price, RMS Communications Coordinator

A recent partners’ float on Section 9 of the French Broad River was a timely reminder of the power of partnerships as we work towards shared goals on our rivers. We want to thank RMS member Jack Henderson for bringing everyone together (despite delays from Tropical Storm Fred!) and the Nantahala Outdoor Center for providing boats, guides, lunch, and transportation.


Virtual discussion series for students about river-related careers
