Last week, Robert Kennedy III, grandson of the late Robert Kennedy, spent a day evaluating the ‘health' of the Lambro River in the northern Italian region of Lombardy. The 20-something Kennedy heir went on canoeing excursion along the river, located near Lake Como, in an effort to establish an ongoing relationship between the Valle Lambro Regional Park and the Waterkeepers Alliance, an American environmental organization that was established by his father. Working as the spokesperson for the organization, the young Kennedy told reporters, ‘There was a lot of sediment, so it appears dirty, but it seems fairly clean... it's a nice river! I live in Milan and so I'm in direct contact with the Lambro all the time. This is why I decided to bring the Waterkeepers Alliance to Italy; it'll be the first country in Europe that has a relationship with Waterkeepers.'
