The Stanislaus River Archive is being developed to make clear the importance of the river and the campaigns to save it during the 1970s and 1980s – and to allow anyone to see visual evidence of what the river was, what the campaigns involved, and what it has become. Learn more about what you can do on this site in this two minute video tutorial.
GreenInfo Network, a nonprofit created in 1996 by former ARTA guide/manager and FOR board chair Larry Orman to provide information technology support to other NGOs, was asked to develop this web site by a group of those who have a long history with the Stanislaus River and who believe it offers enduring inspiration for efforts to conserve the natural world.
Those in this group include Richard Roos-Collins, John Cassidy, Mark Dubois, Alexander Gaguine, Gracielle Rossi, Jennifer Jennings, Jon Amodio, Joe Daly, Roy Tennant, Christian Kallen, Martin Blake, and others.
This project builds on tremendous volunteer efforts by Roy Tennant, who developed the first generation of the archive, and Marty Blake, who maintains the Stanislaus River Museum in Sonora, California, showcasing extensive printed material, some of which is digitally available in the archive. It has also benefited from so many who have already contributed their information to the archive.
As of 2021, the core archive function of The Stanislaus Archive Project has been completed. In 2021, we hope to address some technical fixes for the site, design a more engaging home page, consider adding a Timeline function, and develop a better e-mail communication program to keep people up to date with additions to the site. New material comes in regularly, so check back often!
