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.
