Erin Saylor, Staff Attorney
Erin focuses on protecting the Columbia from fracked gas, oil-by-rail, and other fossil fuel infrastructure. Erin graduated from Lewis & Clark Law School with a certificate in Environmental Law and holds a BA from the College of William & Mary where she double majored in Government and Environmental Studies. Before coming to Riverkeeper, she worked for the Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., where she focused on Clean Water Act permitting, chemical imports, and lead paint cases. In her free time, Erin enjoys getting outside and introducing her three young children to the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
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.
