America’s Rivers: Preparing for the Future

A 28 minute video story of how community leaders around the country are solving flood problems by working with nature, not against it. Dams are being removed and levees are being set back in an effort to restore floodplains and give our rivers room to spread out, while making communities safer and more resilient to weather extremes, and restoring vital habitat for fish and wildlife.
