Help Power a New Year of Work, on Behalf of Rivers

We have ambitious plans for 2017 – restoring rivers by helping remove 75 dams and kicking off our campaign to protect 5,000 new miles of Wild and Scenic rivers and one million acres of riverside lands – but we know we face serious challenges. As a candidate, President-elect Trump announced plans to weaken environmental safeguards, threatening efforts like ours. And he just announced Scott Pruitt – who has a record of opposing clean water safeguards – as his choice to lead the Environmental Protection Agency.

We face an uphill battle when it comes to protecting clean water and restoring river health. That’s why a group of generous donors has come together to match all donations $2 for every $1 received before December 31st up to $276,000, to make sure we can start the year strong.

Our level of achievement in 2017 will hinge on the funds we raise now. Please, give as generously as you can. Your donation will make THREE TIMES the impact for the rivers you love.
