Jim Cox, Western Rivers Conservancy

Jim Cox, Director of Donor Relations for Western Rivers Conservancy will make a presentation entitled “Sometimes To Save A River You Have To Buy It.”  WRC has been working to conserve and protect lands on more than 60 rivers in eight western states.  The presentation will focus on how WRC purchases riverlands across the West to protect and conserve vital river ecosystems and to provide compatible public access.  Included in the program is stunning photography of past and current projects including work on some of the most iconic fly fishing rivers across the West including Idaho’s Salmon River, Oregon’s John Day  and North Umpqua, the Yampa and Rio Grande in Colorado, the Madison River in Montana, California’s Klamath Rivers, and Washington’s Hoh River.  We will also chat about our work in Arizona to protect Fossil Creek and the East Verde.
