American Rivers


American Rivers was founded to protect and restore our nation’s rivers. Since then we have worked to designate 11,000 miles of rivers across the country as “wild and scenic” rivers, brought rivers to life by helping communities remove or re-operate hundreds of dams, safeguarded public health by working to eliminate sewage pollution in our waterways, restored habitat for fish and wildlife, provided scientific and legislative expertise on behalf of rivers and clean water, and delivered advocacy leadership to the nation’s growing river movement. Our work is driven by a core conviction that a healthy river is one of a community’s most valuable assets. American Rivers has over 65,000 supporters nationwide, with staff in Washington, DC and the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Midwest, Southeast, California and Northwest regions.
