RiverWebs was supported by The National Science Foundation, The Fisheries Conservation Foundation, The US Environmental Protection Agency, The Japan-US Friendship Commission, and The US Forest Service.

RiverWebs tells a true story of how scientists are discovering a deeper and more inter-connected stream ecosystem, and one that is intimately connected with streamside forests
RiverWebs illustrates how the movements and behaviors of insects, in both the stream and the forest, influence their predators, like fish, bats, birds, and spiders
RiverWebs illustrates the creative way that science works through observation, questioning, and experimentation, and emphasizes the partnerships and comradery that drive scientific discovery and often cross continents and cultures.
RiverWebs is an excellent tool for groups and classes learning about food web ecology, ecological experimentation, river and fish ecology, aquatic entomology, and macroinvertebrate biomonitoring
RiverWebs is currently being translated into Japenese, and Freshwaters Illustrated is producing a film series to promote a forthcoming book that expands on the RiverWebs story
