Swimming Canyonlands: Campaign to Save the Colorado River
Long-distance swimmer Matt Moseley will take to water in July, swimming close to 50 miles of the Colorado River in a race for conservation funds! You can make a real difference for America’s Most Endangered River and the people who rely on it by supporting his swim.
What’s at stake
Thirty-six million people from Denver to Los Angeles drink Colorado River water. The river irrigates nearly four million acres of land, which grows 15 percent of the nation’s crops. But drought and outdated management have placed significant stress on water supplies and river health. Lower river flows threaten endangered fish and wildlife, along with the $26 billion dollar recreation economy that relies on the Colorado River.
But we can’t do it without you. Stand with thousands of other concerned citizens who are helping to protect our rivers for generations to come.
Pledge your support today. All proceeds from the swim will go to our efforts to protect and restore the Colorado.
