How can diverse communities living along any river in the world work and celebrate together on a grass-roots community level to raise awareness and help save a river, a stream, or a creek? A Gathering of Waters focuses on the plight of the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo as it flows through Colorado and New Mexico and then forms the border between Texas and Mexico.

A special canteen, called the River Vessel, is passed by the carrier downstream from one community to the next. Small water samples are added from each community as hundreds of people have extended a hand to someone upstream, received the River Vessel, added their own contribution of water from the Rio, written in the log book, and passed these along to another person downstream.
