American Rivers is dedicated to protecting and restoring healthy, natural rivers, and the variety of life they sustain, for the benefit of people, fish, and wildlife.
American Rivers is the leading organization working to protect and restore the nation’s rivers and streams. Rivers connect us to each other, nature, and future generations. Since 1973, American Rivers has fought to preserve these connections, helping protect and restore more than 150,000 miles of rivers through advocacy efforts, on-the-ground projects, and the annual release of America’s Most Endangered Rivers®.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, American Rivers has offices across the country and more than 100,000 supporters, members, and volunteers nationwide.
Through our work in five key program areas – Rivers and Global Warming, River Restoration, River Protection, Clean Water, and Water Supply – American Rivers is working to protect our remaining natural heritage, undo the damage of the past, and create a healthy future for our rivers and future generations.
