An enormous media and conservation success, American Rivers' latest press conference cited Congress as the biggest threat to the country's Most Endangered and Threatened Rivers of 1996, along with mines, dams, pollution, flood control projects, and the Centennial Olympic Games.

The 10 Most Endangered Rivers:

•Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone, Wyoming

American River, California

•Upper Chattahoochee and Etowah Rivers, Georgia and Tennessee

Missouri River, Missouri

•Upper Hudson River, New York

Columbia/ Snake River System, Idaho, Montana, Washington and Oregon and Canada

•Elk River, Oregon

Pinto Creek, Arizona

•Penobscot River, Maine

Animas River, Colorado

Other threatened rivers named include the Florida's Everglades and the Los Angeles River. Landscape Architects, who are perfectly suited to restore and foster a river stewardship ethic, may contact American Rivers at 202-547-6900 for more information on these vulnerable currents of America.
