Willamette Riverkeeper

Willamette Riverkeeper is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and restoration of Oregon’s great Willamette River.Visit us at:http://www.willametteriverkeeper.orgLearn about Paddle Oregon:http://www.paddleoregon.org

We believe in a clean and healthy river!

Our goal is to enable the Willamette River watershed to function more naturally with cold, clean water, and to provide a healthy habitat for fish and wildlife.

A river with good water quality, abundant natural habitat, that is safe for fishing and swimming, is a basic public right. The Willamette River belongs to all of us, and should be protected as such.

We invite you to get to know more about the river and our programs. Join us for a paddle trip, a volunteer opportunity, or special event. Join our on-line community and stay up to date on issues affecting your river.
