The Emerald Mile's 32-year-old speed record through the Grand Canyon has officially been broken this week (twice!). And while it was just a matter of time, one thing is for sure, that infamous dory run in 1983 will always be legendary. Photo: Jerry Eisner

“If people don’t know about a place and if people don’t learn to care about and love it, then it’s gone.”

When Ken Brower traveled down the Yampa River in 1952 it was much more than a river trip—it ignited a campaign to stop two big dams on the Green River from flooding Yampa Canyon in the heart of Dinosaur National Monument.

Our latest film, "62 Years," by Logan Bockrath and in partnership with American Rivers, is all at once the story of a father and son, a tribute to preeminent conservationist David Brower and the dawn of the modern environmental movement. It's also a call to action to confront the looming water crisis in the American West. Watch the film and take action at http://www.62YearsFilm.com. #WeAreRivers

"How the battle for one of the West's great rivers was won." 
via +Canoe & Kayak Magazine http://bit.ly/1ZTkDdm
In 1952, Ken Brower entered a new kind of battle. However, as an 8-year-old boy loading up onto an Army surplus neoprene pontoon raft, Brower only had a vague idea about larger fight that some would come to call the “dawn of environmentalism.” He was simply asked to enjoy Colorado’s Yampa River for a film
