April Green Drinks is hosted by American Rivers, a national nonprofit with an office in Bellingham. The organization works protects wild rivers, restores damaged rivers, and conserves clean water for people and nature. Since 1973, American Rivers has protected and restored more than 150,000 miles of rivers through advocacy efforts, on-the-ground projects, and an annual America’s Most Endangered Rivers® campaign.

Locally, their Nooksack Wild and Scenic campaign is working to safeguard the Nooksack's free-flowing character, water quality & recreational values through a Wild and Scenic River designation.
Flowing from the high snowfields and glaciers of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, and the Twin Sisters range in the North Cascades, the Nooksack River system is home to all five types of salmon, bald eagle, black bear, cougar, elk, and many other fish and wildlife species that need intact, wild places to survive.
Whitewater rivers, incredible mountain views and old-growth forests provide world-class hiking, kayaking, and other recreation opportunities.
Yet the majority of the Nooksack system remains unprotected. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act is the strongest tool available to permanently protect our remaining wild rivers. Help ensure that the Nooksack River remains wild and scenic for years to come.
