America's waterways stretch for millions of miles, providing drinking water, irrigation, electricity, food, transport and recreation for people and critical habitat and nutrients for wildlife.
These water supplies, however, are quickly being depleted, threatening the people and nature that depend on them for support. Fortunately, there are countless ways we can inspire change and protect our nation's water resources together. We are teaming up with partners like Tom’s of Maine to help restore and revitalize waterways in need.
Tom's of Maine, the leading maker of natural personal care products, has committed more than $1.5 million to help TNC protect and restore natural water.

Earlier this year, The Nature Conservancy began work to remove the Old Papermill Dam, allowing the East Aspetuck River in Connecticut to flow freely once again. With support from companies like Tom’s of Maine, the removal of the Old Papermill Dam is a larger effort to remove old dams and restore river ecosystems and fish habitats.
