This short video by Eric Martin describes some of the work and success in relicensing on the North Fork Feather River in California, led by American Whitewater. This was voted the staff favorite in a 2008 video contest highlighting AW projects.

Eric Martin; producer, director, and videographer of ‘North Fork Feather River, Process of Progress’ established his whitewater roots in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.  He made a natural progression of river guiding to kayaking to video boating.  This project was an opportunity to give back to American Whitewater.  Eric currently resides in Camden, Maine with his wife and daughter.
