How we do it.

 
Protect

We protect Columbia River communities and habitat from new threats, such as fossil fuel export terminals and intensive industrial development.

Restore

We restore our right to clean water and healthy fish by reducing toxic pollution.

Care

We care for the river by providing hands-on opportunities for diverse communities to engage with their river.

ACT NOW

April is Earth Month—a great time to tell Washington’s Governor Inslee what you think about the world’s largest methanol refinery. Join the call for clean air, healthy salmon runs, a stable climate, and an end to plastics pollution.

IS IT SAFE TO SWIM?

We monitor the water for bacteria at popular recreation sites along the Columbia. Download Swim Guide today for safety updates. 

HOW WE WORK

We use legal advocacy and community organizing to stop pollution, fight fossil fuel terminals, save salmon, build stewardship, and clean up Hanford.
