“It is a tribute to the wisdom of children, and to the vision of a committee of adults who – in the middle of all the clamoring, competing voices – decided to ask the children to speak for the river… In the end, this is what Honoring Our River is all about – the reminder that we are, all of us who live in the Willamette River water-shed, people of the river.”
