Participant Quotes:

Congratulations on Year 1! This year was my first introduction to Many Rivers, and I honestly thought I was encountering an established, many-year-old project. The community involvement, high profile and professionalism–I thought you’d been doing this for ages! If this was only Year 1, I can’t imagine how successful it will be with growth. Cheers!” – Kelly Hodgins, May 2013.
