For the March 14 International Day of Action for Rivers this year, we're celebrating wild rivers with a series of actions around the world. People everywhere will go to their favorite river, stream or beach (anywhere that represents water) and join us in doing a wild river dance!

International Rivers will create our own Wild River Dance Video on the International Day of Action for Rivers on March 14, along with many other actions taking place that day.

The video will feature International Rivers staff, board, volunteers and interns. If you want to participate in the worldwide Wild River Dance, jump in!

Here's what to do:

* Get a video camera. Maybe your mobile phone has one, maybe a friend can film you -- however you can get the footage.
* Find some water. Bring a few people with you to the closest river, creek, marsh, beach or other body of water. Only nearby body of water a storm drain or a river photo? Go for it!
* Play some music. If you play a song using a boombox you can record it on the spot, or mix it with the video later to create an excellent music video.
* Do your favorite Wild River Dance!
* Post your video to YouTube as a "video response" to our Wild River Dance and tag it "wildriverdance."

That's it!

Your video doesn't have to be perfect and you don't need to live near a river. Try to think of creative and new ways that you can illustrate the idea of a free flowing river -- even if that means showing one that isn't. Make a statement. Be creative!

Videos that we especially like will be mashed up into a YouTube video that we'll put up on our channel and show at our 25th Anniversary Celebration in Berkeley on June 4. We'll keep you posted on the upcoming festivities.
