The United States is marked by many beautiful and mighty rivers. Waterways like the Mississippi and the Colorado River have played a vital role for people, from providing transportation to building and sustaining communities. In recent years, though, the effects of climate change -– including droughts and extreme rains –- have made an extreme impact on rivers around the country.
CNN’s John Sutter recently completed a three-week kayaking trip down the “most endangered” river in America: California’s San Joaquin. Now that Sutter's journey is over, we want to discover the waterways that are special to you.
Did you grow up near a river or currently live near one? Do you remember canoeing or fishing there? How has it changed over time? We want to see your photos, videos and stories.
