About the Mark Dubois Award:     More than forty years ago, the actions of a small group of courageous people fighting to save the river they loved set in motion the end of dam building in North America and the birth of countless river protection and watershed groups keeping the magic of their own rivers alive. The campaign to Save the Stanislaus River built Friends of the River into an institution that has gone on to protect and preserve thousands of river miles in California.   Mark Dubois was the leader and the heart and soul of that historic campaign. This year marks the 35th anniversary of Mark chaining himself to a rock in the river canyon to force the US Army Corp of Engineers to stop the water from rising behind the New Melones Dam or drown him. This award is given to extraordinary people whose efforts recall the can-do spirit that Mark Dubois, Founder and Director Emeritus of Friends of the River, infused into our organization.


 We are delighted to have David Sobon  for our live auction!  Get ready to be entertained and to swipe your card for a great cause!
