Through the Most Endangered Rivers report, American Rivers has been the national watchdog raising the alarm on imperiled rivers and energizing grassroots support to stop threats such as dam proposals, mining operations, coal-fired generators, and massive dumping of raw sewage.
Working with local partners, the media, elected officials, and concerned citizens, we have achieved spectacular successes for the nation’s rivers — and the people, fish, and wildlife that depend on them.
