Columbia Riverkeeper developed science units that tackle important environmental issues and inspire action. Kids can work on the units at home on their own, or teachers can facilitate learning in a classroom or online.


Honoring Elizabeth Furse

“Activism is an amazing life,” -Elizabeth Furse. No one lived those words more fully. We mourn the passing of our friend, board member, and a Columbia Riverkeeper founder. On this Earth Day, 21 years ago, Elizabeth and colleagues launched Columbia Riverkeeper.

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