“...the time has also come to identify and preserve free flowing stretches of our great rivers before growth and development make the beauty of the unspoiled waterway a memory.” - Lyndon Johnson, Message on Natural Beauty
There are 91,000 dams in the United States. The Colorado River rarely reaches its final destination, the Gulf of California. Forty percent of the salmon and steelhead breeding grounds on the Columbian River Basin in the PNW have been blocked by dams, critically injuring the fish population. The Durango, Colorado rafting season in 2015 was shut down due to three million gallons of toxic water from the Gold King Mine to the north spilling out into the Animas River. Our precious rivers have supported wildlife and generations before us since the beginning of time... It’s our job to make sure they continue long after we are gone.
