Resilient Rivers Blueprint

What is the Blueprint?

The Resilient Rivers Blueprint incorporates the River Journey, the River Resilience Report Card, and the Resilient Rivers Hub. Each play a vital role in establishing the tools for building and achieving resilience in your river and community.

Why the Blueprint?
