The Colorado River—the same river that carved the Grand Canyon—doesn’t even make it to the sea anymore. And it’s not just the Colorado: The Nile, the Ganges, the Rio Grande, and other rivers both big and small are so overtapped they’re often reduced to just a trickle.
The good news is that we can fix this. Pledge to conserve water by texting RIVER to 77177.  Corporate sponsors underwrite your pledges and fund water restoration projects throughout North America. Then, Change the Course uses this funding to work with conservation organizations on projects that restore water to rivers and wetlands. To learn more, visit changethecourse.us.
