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 we collected 1000’s of pounds of trash with volunteers on Trashy Tuesdays, engaged 100’s of people in educational paddle trips, planted over 90K native plants at restoration sites, mapped aquatic invasive weeds, continued freshwater mussel research and began research on invasive crayfish and micro-plastics, all while working to uphold the Clean Water Act, and ensure progress on the Portland Harbor Superfund clean up.
