Take a Virtual Tour Through River Scout

September 25, 2016

Written by: Imogen Farris, Public Relations Coordinator

Even though Atlanta is two hundred miles from the ocean, we are still connected by various river systems that serve as a direct link to the sea. It’s important to remember that we’re all connected to our world ocean this way. Our actions at home can affect the environment directly around us and the environment hundreds of miles away.

Today we are celebrating World Rivers Day! This international holiday has been celebrated since 2005, with more than 60 countries and millions of people participating each year. World Rivers Day is important to celebrate because it allows us to highlight our local river systems, as well as those across the globe.
