Headwaters – Friends of the River’s online magazine is accepting submissions

Friends of the River’s Headwaters Magazine is a beautiful repository of articles about rivers and river recreation, opinion pieces, policy analysis, river news, art, photographs, and more.

We welcome submissions of articles that speak to the six areas in which we work for the protection of California’s rivers. These areas are hydropower reform, saving and storing water, restoring flows, flood management, legal and regulatory protections, and inspiring citizen action.

We also welcome submissions of visual art, creative writing, poetry, and photos that are centered around rivers and nature more broadly.

Not sure what to submit? Let’s work together. More info here. Please email keiko@friendsoftheriver.org to discuss a submission.

Winter Data Collection for Friends of the Inyo

Do you crosscountry or backcountry ski or snowboard, snowshoe, or snowmobile in the Inyo National Forest? Do you want to help the US Forest Service make informed decisions about Winter Recreation and Over Snow Vehicle use? You can help Friends of the Inyo by taking part in some citizen science!

It’s easy:

  1. First, check out the Colorado Mountain Club’s Recreation Impact Monitoring System (CMC – RIMS) app here;
  2. Then, take a peek at a two-minute online training video here.

After that, you’ll be ready to record some observations and be able to boast about being a self-conscribed field researcher. If you have any questions, please contact Lindsay@friendsoftheinyo.org.
