Rivers connect us. They connect us to the past and future, to each other, and to the rest of the natural world. Rivers and the lands they flow through are destinations for all sorts of recreation and solace. Rivers flow through nearly 640 million acres of public lands in the US, every acre of which belongs to all Americans. These landscapes are integral to who we are. Our public lands and waters are deeply connected to our stories , they provide a place for families and friends to connect, offer ample opportunities for recreation, and are economic drivers from coast to coast.
