From the press release:
Don McEnhill, the Executive Director of Russian Riverkeeper since 2001, is passionately committed to caring for the health of the Russian River. Under Don’s watch (and close-up observation of the River by kayak), Russian Riverkeeper has grown to provide a wide range of River-related services, including environmental education, River cleanup, park development, and programs for dealing with fire damage, erosion and drought. Don speaks for the Russian River in this difficult time of climate change, advocating for water policies and regulations that will allow the River ecosystem to thrive while balancing the needs of people. Don’s advocacy in this year of historic drought has been especially critical.
