Welcome to the Pacific Chapter of the River Management Society!

We are river professionals and students from California, Nevada and Hawaii. Our goal is to further the RMS mission by providing a forum for members in the Pacific Region to discuss river management and professional development issues in chapter workshops and other events that are informative and fun. The most recent RMS Journal with a Pacific Chapter focus is the  Winter 2018 issue.

Upcoming Event


Join us on the Wild and Scenic Tuolumne River 

Issues for Rivers of the Pacific Slope      April 19-21, 2019

Schedule, Logistics


Learn from your colleagues and peers who work on Pacific Slope rivers!

Since we first conceived the conference, it has been a big season for precipitation. When we reached 168% of average snowpack, we changed the raft trip portion to a one day trip to allow boat operators who've not seen the river this year to do a pre-trip trip on Saturday.

We will be served food on Friday night/Saturday morning at the lodge and we'll take care of ourselves as a group for food after that: we have kitchen facilities available.  We'll get to know each other over chores and not have to change the payment options for those who've already signed up.

For those who are registered to stay at Tuolumne Trails: you can pay for a second night when you arrive.  Looking forward to seeing you!

We look forward to seeing you in Groveland, California!!
