Endangered Rivers On FIRE!


Stop the Attacks on
Clean Water 

Let Congress know you support the Clean Water Act

What a week!  News of the release of American Rivers’ annual list of America’s Most Endangered Rivers® spread like wildfire this week.  This gives us great hope that progress will be made towards good decisions for our ten rivers this year.  I was so excited about the great coverage that we have seen, and I wanted to share some of the highlights from this week with you.

  • Later on Tuesday, our President, Bob Irvin, did a great radio interview on NPR with Kojo Nnamdi.  Bob explained why we listed the Potomac River, and what it could mean for rivers across the country.
  • Plus, check out this awesome interactive map from The Guardian!

We are continuing to see the wheels turning in the media and with decision-makers.  Throughout the rest of this month, we will be talking about one of America’s Most Endangered Rivers® each day.  So stay tuned for more updates and the latest news! 

Please help us spread the word about protecting these rivers, and if you have not already done so, TAKE ACTION NOW!  You can help each of our rivers this year by sending tailored letters to decision-makers.  Just a couple of clicks can make it happen!
