“I grew up exploring and cherishing Oregon’s rivers. We’ve reached a point where holding the line on environmental issues isn’t enough. That’s why I support The Freshwater Trust. I know they’re not just stopping bad from happening. They’re making change for Oregon’s rivers that can be seen and quantified.” —Matt Milletto, co-founder and CEO, Water Avenue Coffee, and Headwaters Council member at The Freshwater Trust
