Upper St. Lawrence RIVERKEEPER. Protecting and preserving the Upper St. Lawrence River...because we all have a place on the water!
Since 1978 Save The River has worked with thousands of year-round and seasonal members, on both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the River, to ensure that the upper St. Lawrence River is protected for future generations. Our advocacy positions - from acting as a watchdog on St. Lawrence Seaway issues to fighting for environmentally sound water levels regulation - are based on independent science and community outreach.
Tell Rep. Elise Stefanik “Thanks!” for her visit to Save The River & continued strong support for Plan 2014.
We were particularly pleased with her continued strong support for Plan 2014, based as it is on a complete understanding of the problems the old water levels plan has caused and her commitment to be a strong advocate for adoption and implementation of the new plan soon. read more
