A whole river is mountain country and hill country and flat country and swamp and delta country, is rock bottom and sand bottom and weed bottom and mud bottom, is blue, green, red, clear, brown, wide, narrow, fast, slow, clean, and filthy water, is all the kinds of trees and grasses and all the breeds of animals and birds and man that pertain and have ever pertained to its changing shores...
Goodbye to a River
John Graves' SOA
#5851 Protest Letter (May 2005)
HRC, UT Austin - John Graves Bio Sketch & Bibliography
The members of Friends of the Brazos River are concerned about
restoring a sound ecological environment to the Brazos, especially between Lakes Possum
Kingdom and Whitney. We invite you to join in our efforts... Several years ago, the Brazos River Conservation Coalition, a
group of concerned landowners and citizens in North Texas, succeeded in passage of SB-1354
which created the John Graves Scenic Riverway in Parker and Palo
Pinto Counties. The FBR seeks to extend those gains by working with the Brazos River
Authority and State agencies (TPWD, TRDB, TCEQ) in obtaining minimum instream flows to
ensure a healthy and sound ecological environment for the Brazos River, especially
upstream of Lake Whitney.
Won't you join our efforts?

Friends of the Brazos will:
Sponsor river cleanups and habitat
Work for the passage of legislation beneficial to the Brazos River
Strive for increased appreciation and
respect for the precious natural resource that is the Brazos River
Educate our members and the public about
responsibilities of river recreationists. We must work together to find a way to stop
litter, trespass, and other irresponsible acts on the Brazos River
