A nucleus of educators, science types, conservationists, and other river enthusiasts has begun discussing “re-booting” The River Exchange. We are considering new pathways, different business models, retaining what works, and bringing in new, younger leadership, interests, and know-how.
Fourteen interested people attended our first public “Reboot the River Exchange” meeting on June 21. Executive Director Phil Detrich described the present status in terms of finances, activities, and participation. We exchanged a lot of ideas, and various folks are considering different paths and how they might contribute.
Since that meeting, two people from diverse backgrounds have agreed to join our Board of Directors! They are Michelle Andras and Peter Arth. Michelle is a Mt. Shasta native, young mother, and experienced environmental educator. Peter is a retired attorney, former mayor of Dunsmuir, and local benefactor. What a great start for the Reboot!
Please join us at the FireWhat classroom on August 11, 7:00 pm!
After 22 years, we’re proud of our accomplishments and certain that there is still great value and creative potential in The River Exchange. Our mission still rings true: “To promote healthy watersheds through community involvement in stewardship, restoration, and education.’
