The RMS Northwest Chapter challenges all RMS members to celebrate National Rivers Month (NRM) with a brief story and photo of your celebration experience. This is a great opportunity to stay connected and learn during this time when our regular RMS group events have been shelved. Your story of a river trip, hike or volunteer activity would be a tribute to the connection we have with clean water, wildlife habitat, recreation, energy and life.
