Kids4Rivers LogoKids4Rivers is a great way for kids to show they care about the forests, rivers and wildlife in their community. If they just do 3 simple things a month, they will help protect the environment AND get a prize for participating. If they do it all year, they'll get a chance for a BIG prize and know they've made a difference for clean air, land and water...
