What inspires you to do this work?
I am inspired to do this work because I discern clean water’s value in improving the welfare of wildlife, the environment, and our communities. I’m grateful for an upbringing that revolved around playing in Wisconsin’s endless waters and for the support of family and friends to continue to explore and protect North America’s vast resources.
Riverkeeper’s team includes scientists, environmental lawyers, and community organizers. We work to organize and empower local communities, enforce environmental laws, and build strategic coalitions. Our mission is to protect and restore the Columbia River and all life connected to it.
