America's Most Endangered Rivers - 2015

A list of the 10 rivers whose future is most threatened by critical decisions during the next year, the most endangered rivers report has been compiled by American Rivers each year since 1984. It lists the rivers, summarizes the threats, presents alternatives, identifies crucial decision-makers, and points out opportunities for citizens to take action on behalf of the listed rivers.

Nearest Memphis are the Harpeth in TN (#9) and the Pearl in MS (#10), and wherever we live all Americans feel an affinity with the iconic Colorado in the Grand Canyon, listed #1 in this year's report.
