THE STORY:

American Rivers wrote -

One of our country's national treasures – the Colorado River’s Grand Canyon – is facing threats that could destroy its health and ruin the experience for anyone visiting the park.

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 project alone could turn the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers into a cross between a strip mall and an amusement park. Second, there is a major housing and hotel development proposal that would deplete groundwater and harm important springs and seeps 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. 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.

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.

Never doubt that what you do makes a difference. I know that with your support, we will save this special place and create a future of healthy rivers for generations to come.
