American Rivers' Hydropower Reform Coalition is a consortium of more than 150 conservation and recreation groups focused on protecting and restoring rivers from harm caused by dams. The coalition uses the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's dam relicensing process and the designation of wild and scenic rivers as the means of protecting and restoring rivers. This grant would support that work with a focus on four river systems with many dams whose licenses will be renewed in the coming years: the Columbia/Snake, Sacramento, San Joaquin, and Klamath. Additionally, coalition members will work to protect 1,100 miles of rivers in four states.

for the Hydropower Reform Coalition
Founded in 1992, the Hydropower Reform Coalition (a fiscally sponsored project of American Rivers), is a diverse consortium of more than 160 national, regional, and local conservation and recreation organizations dedicated to protecting and restoring rivers affected by hydropower dams. Working together, the coalition has protected or restored thousands of river miles, thousands of acres of watershed land, and countless opportunities for boating, fishing, and other recreational experiences.
