Make the Willamette River healthy for fish and wildlife and safe for fishing and swimming. Willamette Riverkeeper informs, involves, educates and connects Oregonians to their river through advocacy, scientific research, ecological restoration, volunteerism and experiential learning.
Bottom Line for Portland
In 2019 and 2020, our volunteers helped remove thousands of pounds of trash from the river, we engaged hundreds of people in educational paddle trips, expanded your opportunities to enjoy the Willamette River Water Trail by acquiring 12 more acres of riverside land, planted over 200,000 native plants at restoration sites, mapped and, in many instances, removed harmful aquatic invasive weeds throughout the mainstem river, continued our groundbreaking freshwater mussel research, and began research on microplastics while also working to uphold the Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act and holding polluters accountable for the Portland Harbor Superfund site cleanup process.
