Project Description:

This project is a river preservation campaign to stop the proposed Centennial Dam and instead establish protections for one of the last free flowing stretches of the Bear River through early stakeholder education and grassroots organization. The focus of the past year has been increased public awareness through materials, website, social media, and events related to initial environmental processes and permitting with CEQA NOP and State Water Resources Control Board water rights proceedings.
