AW also attends several other events each year throughout the US. At events, AW seeks to increase memberships, raise funds for river stewardship work, improve visibility and communications with the community and to support our partners and proponents.
Over the years, AW has shifted away from running multiple events to running just Gauley Fest and Deerfield Fest and simply attending other events. This has allowed us to better focus on our core goal of river stewardship. We have fewer resources tied up in putting on events and we're now able to focus more of our resources on saving rivers. A win for rivers, and a win for the value of our supporter's funds.
