Your membership protects and restores the mighty Columbia River now and for future generations.
Community leaders, volunteers, and donors who share a vision for clean water.
“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?”
“No matter what type of background we come from, clean water is key to everything we hold dear, whether it’s the health of our human and natural communities or our regional economic vitality related to fishing, recreation, and tourism.”
“Riverkeeper is a great agency with a great cause; it deserves all the support we can provide.”
“My children and their children depend on this river. Every stream I work on, every creek I cross, drains into the Columbia. Its course runs down the center of my world, and I’ll never stop trying to protect it.”
“I support and volunteer with Riverkeeper because experience has shown me that they get work done. I can’t imagine a better way to invest my time and money than to give it to knowledgeable and skilled folks who spend 24/7 protecting our river through education and action.”
“Climate change is probably the greatest threat in history. No one does a better job fighting fossil fuel exports than Columbia Riverkeeper.”
