American Rivers

American Rivers is a national conservation organization dedicated to protecting and restoring healthy natural rivers and the variety of life they sustain for people, fish, and wildlife. We were founded in 1973 to increase the number of rivers protected by the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System and to prevent the construction of large new dams on our last wild rivers. We work closely with grassroots river and watershed groups because we believe supporting each others’ efforts is key to the health of rivers nationwide. We deliver innovative solutions to improve river health; raise awareness among decision-makers and the public; serve and mobilize the river conservation movement; and collaborate with partners to create a vision for improving river health across the country.
