Fracked-Gas-to-Methanol Refinery
Tell Ecology to say “No!” to a climate disaster


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.

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.
