Willamette Riverkeeper is a non-profit organization, whose sole mission is to protect and restore the Willamette River. We believe that a river with good water quality and abundant natural habitat is a basic public right. The Willamette River belongs to all of us, and should be protected as such.

We invite you to take a look around our website and get to know more about the River and our Programs. Join us for a Saturday paddle trip, a volunteer training, or sign up for our action alert list and stay up to date on issues affecting our River.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or inquires you might have about the river and Willamette Riverkeeper. Find out how you can support our organization and the river by making a financial contribution.

Read highlights of the most current work and activities happening on the Willamette River in the latest issue of Riverscape E-newsletter.

We thank you for caring about our River!
