Save the Bear River

Get educated, involved, and take action locally. Listen to the KVMR audio from Monday, March 13, broadcast from Nevada Theatre for the Centennial Dam Watchdog Activist Summit.

SYRCL is brought together a panel of speakers chosen for their expertise in law, hydrology, ecology, water politics, community activism, and local history. The speakers provide information about the scope and cost of the project, the risks associated with building this dam, sustainable alternatives, and how community members can take action to challenge this contested proposal.

If you do not have time now, make time to listen to this priceless teaching tool.
