The Forces of Nature and Council of Elders Projects
RRI believes that sharing the wisdom of the first wave of the environmental movement—citizen activists, resource managers, and professionals from the 1960s and 70s— is valuable to current and future generations. RRI’s goal is to record over 250 interviews with these “environmental elders” from around the country and world and to post them on an online library along with the interview transcripts and archival information. With a number of our Elders, the stories are not preserved anywhere else but for our video library, making our project an important oral history, as well educational, collection. Learn more...

Fish In The Fields
FIF adapts the ancient practice of co-cultivating rice and fish in some of California's 500,000 acres of rice lands. RRI has, over six years, rigorously tested methods for co-cultivating small fish in flooded rice fields. RRI has shown that fish raised in rice fields living on naturally-occurring plankton that are present in rice irrigation water can grow 4-5 times their weight in several months. This year the project has brought its hatchery into full production, and expanded onto a second rice field location with four new ponds for growing fish. RRI has assembled a strong and diverse team of farm managers, aquaculture professionals, conservationists, and rice growers in a successful partnership that has demonstrated its ability for successful collaboration.
