This annual celebration of the Rio Grande-Rio Bravo is a binational event that takes place each October, usually on the third Saturday.
It began in 1994 under the direction of the now-defunct Rio Grande/Rio Bravo Coalition, based in El Paso, TX. Since then, communities throughout the watershed basin continue to celebrate this life-giving river as it courses from the Rocky Mountains in southern Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico.
RGISC, and its sister organization in Nuevo Laredo called CIER (Centro Internacional de los Estudios del Rio Bravo), have faithfully kept this tradition alive each year. We hope you will join us in our month-long calendar of exciting Dia del Rio events, which includes a work day at the Paso del Indio Nature Trail, river art exhibit, kayaking excursions, a proclamation, and workshops on topics related to green living.
We believe that supporting these binational Día del Rio events will translate into positive outcomes for millions of people that share the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo watershed.
