Why I give?

Member since 2009

“Why? It’s a mystery, isn’t it? The more I probe the Columbia, the deeper it flows and the smaller I get. What, of our place, could be more worth keeping?”

“I support Columbia Riverkeeper because they protect the Columbia River, a beloved treasure. Without their focused efforts, we could not help the river in a meaningful way. ... Since learning about Riverkeeper, I have supported their efforts and encouraged others to do the same.”
