The Big River Foundation is a 501c3 educational non-profit.  All contributions
are tax-deductible and enable experiential education focused on watershed ecology issues in the equation that balances the need for conservation with the need for sustainable development.

When watersheds are bisected by rivers that serve as international borders, conservation becomes a differential equation whose solution is a function
of complex variables. Help us solve this equation!
