Pedram's stream of consciousness

Friday, September 09, 2005


Yesterday I went on a group offsite to the south fork of the American River for a white water rafting trip. I have to say it was totally AWESOME!!! Hopefully I can get some pics up soon.

The trip was set up by this group called Friends of the River(FOR) who offer guided runs through class 3 rapids in order to educate people about California's rivers. They are trying to save CA rivers from new dams, dumping, and other developments that harm our river system Even though I love the wilderness and fishing, I honestly haven't given much thought to the impact that we have on the rivers. As our population grows, we have to increase our consumption of resources like water, lumber, farm land, and kit-kat bars. . Their efforts range from environmental education to political advocacy and it is worth taking 10 minutes to check out their website and see if there are any ways that you can contribute to their cause.
