Honoring Our Rivers
Honoring Our Rivers is an ongoing project of the Willamette Partnership. Now in its 13th season, Honoring our Rivers is a creative project between myriad partners to collect and publish writing and artwork in an anthology that explores and celebrates the relationship between Oregon residents and their watersheds.
This program is particularly geared towards engaging youth by 1) educating students about the challenges facing the health of Oregon’s watersheds, and 2) inspiring students to reflect upon their connection and impact on their native environment through words and artwork.
Each year, a panel of judges – made up of educators, river advocates and published authors – select the most whimsical, charming and thought provoking submissions to be published in the anthology alongside notable individuals such as Ursula LeGuin, Barry Lopez and Kathleen Dean-Moore. The writing and artwork selected for publication are made accessible to the broader community through a published anthology and scheduled community events, such as public readings and art displays.
Please see the Honoring Our Rivers website http://www.honoringourriver.org/ for submission deadlines and past anthologyies.
