Help us Save The Missouri at http://www.SaveTheMissouri.org

Like most people, I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and boating or 
just enjoying the view when I visit a river. But one of our nation's 
most famous rivers, the Missouri River, is in trouble. 
Did you know the Missouri River - the "Mighty Mo" - is the longest 
river in America? 

It's also the river that carried Lewis and Clark west on their 
historic journey. But today, Missouri River fish and game are 
imperiled and some native species even face extinction. 
That's why we're launching an Internet campaign to tell the Army 
Corps of Engineers and the Bush administration to restore the Mighty 
Mo's heartbeat and save the river's fish and wildlife! 
Will you help? Just click here to send a free email:     

Right now, dams on the Missouri River are preventing the natural rise 
and fall of water levels in order to support a miniscule amount of 
barge traffic. 

To save the Missouri River, the Army Corps must change dam operations 
to allow more natural river flows. This would not only help fish and 
game and endangered species; it would help local communities by 
boosting recreation and tourism. 

Today, you have a rare opportunity to tell the Army Corps and the 
Bush administration to do the right thing. 

It only takes a minute to help. And if you forward this message to 
your friends and family, we'll really get the ball rolling. 
Thanks for your help,
