Celebrate Rivers
June 02, 2017

June is National Rivers Month! Need a good reason to celebrate? Here are just a few to choose from, courtesy of American Rivers

  • In the United States, one out of every three people gets their drinking water from a river or stream (though they might not know it!) 
  • Rivers are good for our economy: people spend about $97 billion each year on river-related recreation and tourism.
  • Fish and wildlife depend on rivers, especially during breeding and migration.

The United States is home to about 2.9 million miles of river to enjoy and protect.
