Canary in the coal mine – rivers and streams

At the Coalition, we understand that our rivers and streams function as the proverbial canary in the coal mine when it comes to a changing climate. Heat, low snowpack, fire and drought can combine in a merciless mix some years, taking a toll on our beloved rivers. The resulting dry streambeds and belly-up fish tell a grim story.
