Few things have such a fundamental impact on a river as a dam. They block a river’s flow and can harm clean water, fish and wildlife, and recreation opportunities. While some dams can benefit society, many dams are old, unsafe or no longer serve their intended purposes.
Since 1973, American Rivers has been working to restore our nation's damaged rivers. So far, we've helped return more than 150,000 miles of rivers back to their free-flowing way!
Last year we removed 41 dams and restored 846 miles of rivers through removing dams and improving dam operations. But we have so much more to go.
And to help us start the new year off with a bang, a generous Board Member has offered to match $2 for every $1 donated through this holiday challenge up to $25,000.
Help us launch this challenge by making a gift today.
