America's Most Endangered Rivers
Updated: Jan 16
Maine's Atlantic Salmon Rivers have been named one of America's Most Endangered Rivers of 2022.

"For decades, Mainers have worked hard to protect and restore Maine's salmon rivers by breaching dams, repairing fishways, protecting habitat and restocking rivers.
