River Watch Sept. 2014(Looking for Volunteers!)

 The “River Watch” is a volunteer organization that aims to protect China’s rivers.  We perform on-site investigation, observing local conditions in order to gain a better understanding of the plights of each river.  

The “River Watch” functions as both an ecological tour and a river investigation.  We meet every Saturday we journey to Beijing’s rivers and watersheds.  We record the conditions of the river not only as a means to achieve a better understanding, but for aesthetic reasons as well.  Our concern for Beijing’s natural resources stems from a genuine love of nature as well as a pragmatic realization that such resources are necessary for Beijing to thrive.
