River Advocacy Groups

Who do you support? Who is doing good work? I am currently not a member of any group but I need to change that. The two I'm aware of, at least through their website, are Idaho Rivers United and American Whitewater. I'm sure there are more. Thanks.

This makes sense. I will look into the Deschutes River Conservancy.

Most important (and easy) thing to do is join AW. Local organization support is good as well.

  • American Whitewater if you're a boater
  • Grand Canyon Private Boater's Association if you want to go run the Grand Canyon
  • Your Local Whitewater / River Conservation Advocacy Group
