River Rats Wanted

Despite its name, a river rat isn’t a rodent, but a person who spends his or her time paddling, fishing and exploring rivers. More than that, they spend their time defending the importance of rivers, from the habitats they support to the human lives they enrich.

Dale Sanders, 74, a self-described river rat (Rattus fluvius?), avid paddler and volunteer/director for the Wolf River Conservancy, is looking for converts.

Read the very thorough and inspiring A River Runs Through Us: Memphis’ once and future connection with the Wolf by ERIC SMITH in this week's Memphis News.
