Check Out Our Winter Stewardship Update and See What Your Membership Supports!

At the end of every year, American Whitewater takes a hard look at the success we’ve found and the steps forward we’ve taken in our multitude of projects across the country. We then quickly turn to the future and set the next set of ambitious stewardship goals we hope to accomplish in the following year. We share these goals and the progress we’ve achieved towards them in our Winter Stewardship Update. And you should know, we have big plans for 2023! From dam removals, new instream flows in dewatered rivers, and securing new Wild and Scenic designations, to new access sites, influencing National Forest Plans and sharing our second round of American Whitewater produced whitewater safety films and other tools, we’ll have our work cut out for us. If our past success is any indication we’ll surely rise to the challenge, but we can't do it without your ongoing support to keep our work on track. 

Your membership dollars and donations are an incredibly efficient and effective way to show your love for rivers. For the 12th year in a row, American Whitewater was awarded a 4-star rating, the highest rating Charity Navigator awards for excellence in financial practices and transparency! Less than 2% of charities have received this four-star designation 11 years in a row. 

So take a moment to see what your contribution will support in every whitewater region across the country in our 2022 Winter Stewardship Update and know that your membership and tax-deductible donations keep our river stewardship program running strong. As you begin to think about your charitable gifts for the end of the year, consider the value American Whitewater's work brings to you and the whitewater paddling community. We've got some exciting projects on the horizon and we hope we can count on your support! Become an American Whitewater member or make a charitable tax-deductible donation today!

 The team at American Whitewater thanks you, and so do our rivers!
