  2. Featuring the WILD people and WILD places along the Lower Mississippi! Narrated by river rebel Mark River with raw river gee-tar by Driftwood Johnnie and technicals by River Brax. A must-see for any and all river-rats! The longest water trail in America along the longest stretch of free-flowing river in the continental United States, over 1100 miles from St. Louis to the Gulf of Mexico (including the Middle Miss from the Missouri River confluence).  There are thousands of islands, backchannels, side channels and oxbow lakes to explore.  The trail connects cities, states, public lands, festivals and all of the people and businesses found along the Lower Miss.

    Georgia, Alabama and Florida are locked in an epic battle over the fresh water from their once bountiful rivers.

    They call it the "Water Wars." It's a conflict once unthinkable in the deep green South.

    But is it all about high-stakes politics and legal action?

    Two brothers decide to find out more. David and Michael Hanson paddle the three rivers for 30 days to ask the big questions, at water-level.

    From the North Georgia Mountains to the Gulf of Mexico, everyone wants to know Who Owns Water.

  4. Why are there no Salmon in the Upper Columbia River? What can we do about that? What are the options?
    VoyagesofRediscovery.blogspot.com
    In this first episode, we explore the ongoing discussion of salmon passage (Fish Ladder) at the Grand Coulee and Chief Joseph Dams. We hear from tribal members, fishery biologists, and the crew of Voyages of Rediscovery as they prepare for their journey up the Columbia River, honoring the historic and once prolific salmon runs up the Columbia River.

    The mission is to paddle up the Columbia River from Sea2Source in 5 salmon inspired dugout canoes carved by 1000s of students who had salmon removed from their cultures by the creation of the grand coulee dam.

    Now We paddle for the Salmon.
