Columbia Riverkeeper

Mission

To protect and restore the water quality of the Columbia River and all life connected to it through public engagement, strategic litigation, hands-on involvement and grassroots organizing. 

Bottom Line for Portland

Columbia Riverkeeper stopped 60,000 pounds of toxic pollution from entering the Columbia River. It turned out more than 1,000 people to testify against the proposed massive oil terminal in Vancouver, Wash., and also stopped 1.2 million cubic yards of dredging in critical salmon habitat—the largest private dredging project in the area’s recent history.

“Columbia Riverkeeper has earned the trust of tribes working to restore strong salmon runs and reduce harmful toxic pollution. Time and again, Riverkeeper stands out as one of the most effective voices for river protection.” —Paul Lumley, executive director, Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission
