“Dam Good News From Coast to Coast.”
American Rivers protects and restores rivers for the benefit of nature, people and animals. We are the national leader in removing dams that have outlived their useful life to restore rivers to their natural form and function. We currently have the largest dam removal projects in our country’s history underway in the northwest and northeast. Simultaneously, we are working with the Conewango Creek Watershed Association to reconnect Conewango Creek to provide fish passage and habitat connectivity for freshwater mussels. Lisa Hollingsworth-Segedy, AICP, will speak about the benefits of large and small dam removals around the country and how American Rivers works with local, regional and national partners to maximize the ecological, financial and community benefits of river restoration projects.
