• From preserving Iraq’s water resources to seeking federal protection for the Los Angeles River, waterway advocates are being recognized today by River Network and Tom’s of Maine as part of the 2012 River Heroes Awards. Now in its 12th year, the awards celebrate those who protect the Earth’s rivers and watersheds.

This year’s five exceptional River Heroes honorees are: Dr. Azzam Alwash, Nature Iraq (Sulaimani, Iraq), Terry Backer, Long Island Soundkeeper (Norwalk, CT), Susan Heathcote, Iowa Environmental Council (Des Moines, IA), John Wathen, Friends of Hurricane Creek (Tuscaloosa, AL) and George Wolfe, L.A. River Expeditions (Venice, CA.)

In addition, every year River Network celebrates one individual’s accomplishments with the James R. Compton Lifetime Achievement Award. This year’s honoree is Sally Bethea, Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (Atlanta, GA).

The River Network is leading a national watershed protection movement that includes more than 2,000 local, state and regional and local grassroots organizations whose primary mission is to protect rivers and watersheds.
