"Supporting professionals who study, protect and manage North America's rivers."
The River Management Society (RMS) is the nation's premier network connecting those who work on and for rivers with their river professional peers, including outfitters and guides, rangers, planners and landscape architects, fluvial geomorphologists, environmental lawyers and policymakers, students, professors, researchers and authors.
What We Do
RMS offers training workshops and series of 'conversations' on topics ranging from managing wild and scenic rivers and their specific river values (scenery, recreation, culture, fish and wildlife) to addressing the overwhelming need to welcome and embrace the cultural and ethnic diversity of the public who visit rivers and rely on them for sustenance. We host the National Rivers Project, an ever-growing geospatial map which allows visitors to 'shop' over 2000 for river trips on wild and scenic rivers, water trails and whitewater rivers. RMS and its members offer year-round mentorship, avenues to pursue river internships and permanent job opportunities to students who love rivers and being outside,. We are extremely proud of our multi-disciplinary River Studies and Leadership Certificate through ten universities and colleges in the U.S.
