Rock the River

On April 25, DRBA is seeking volunteers for "Rock the River" at Staunton River State Park. This day-long event is a Girl Scout recruiting event (open to the public!) and will have canoe lessons, craft stations, river bank clean up, s'mores, and—best of all—end with everyone participating in an African drum circle. Professional djembe drummers from Danville, VA and Wilmington, NC will lead everyone in the closing ceremony that sends a rousing Earth Day "thank you" to the river for all it gives to us. No prior drumming experience necessary.

Please email Jenny Edwards at jedwards@danriver.org or call 276-340-2462 if you would like to hear more or to volunteer for this fun-filled event. As always, thank you for all you do for the Dan River Basin.
