Columbia Riverkeeper works to protect, restore, & care for the Columbia River.
How we do it.
We protect Columbia River communities and habitat from new threats, such as fossil fuel export terminals and intensive industrial development.
We restore our right to clean water and healthy fish by reducing toxic pollution.
We care for the river by providing hands-on opportunities for diverse communities to engage with their river.
More than 150 people gathered Friday for the first day-long “Hanford Journey,” a collaboration between the Yakama Nation and the Columbia Riverkeeper to both honor the life and legacy of tribal environmental leader Russell Jim and to acknowledge that the fight continues.
We monitor the water for bacteria at popular recreation sites along the Columbia. Download Swim Guide today for safety updates.
We use legal advocacy and community organizing to stop pollution, fight fossil fuel terminals, save salmon, build stewardship, and clean up Hanford.
Take a stand for clean water and healthy communities. Your membership protects and restores the mighty Columbia River now and for future generations.
