November 8 Chapter Meeting

Title of Talk: A River’s Reach – A Source to Sea Adventure on the Sacramento River – A Documentary Film Screening

November 8, 2023 at 7:00 PM

Register here to receive the Zoom meeting information.


A River’s Reach chronicles the source-to-sea adventure of 3 women on the Sacramento River in the spring of 2021. While paddling from the source of the Sacramento River in the Klamath Mountains all the way to its terminus at the Golden Gate Bridge, the crew interviewed diverse stakeholders to better understand the most pressing issues the Sac and its communities are facing. The film offers an intimate view of the Sacramento River and its riparian edges that will be of interest to the California Native Plant advocacy community.

Speaker Bio

Arianna Kosel is a 31 year old outdoor enthusiast who fuels her adventures with laughter, curiosity and her trusty bottle of Sriracha. She grew up on the rivers surrounding her hometown of Mt. Shasta and went through her first guide training on the Upper Sacramento back in 2008. Since then, she’s continued to find joy and growth on rivers across the United States and internationally.

Ari worked as a field instructor with the Northwest Outward Bound School and other outdoor education programs from 2015-2020, contributing to her interest in the environment and her desire to help people connect with nature. She is currently working towards a Master’s in Psychology & Counseling with an emphasis on Community Mental Health at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. Her B.S. in Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems from UC Davis in 2014 is the source of her curiosity surrounding the Sacramento river’s vast network of stakeholders and users. She is passionate about the intersection of recreation, environmental protection, education, and social justice in the outdoors.
