THE STORY:

American Rivers wrote -

Colorado River’s Grand Canyon is facing threats that could destroy its health and ruin the experience for anyone who visits.

The first is a proposed tram that would take up to 10,000 people per day from the canyon rim down to the river. That could turn the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers into a a strip mall and amusement park. Second, there is a major housing and hotel development proposal that would deplete groundwater and harm important springs that keep the Colorado River healthy. And third, there is the ongoing challenge of pollution from uranium mining seeping into creeks and threatening the Colorado River’s clean water.

YOU can help. Here's how...

Help safeguard the Colorado River – the lifeblood of the Grand Canyon -- by joining this challenge.

Any donations you make through this CrowdRise Challenge will be matched $2 for every $1 you donate up to $50,000 – that TRIPLES your impact.

You will support our work with local partners to protect the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River, and the people, fish, and wildlife that depend on them.
