Willamette Riverkeeper

Mission

Willamette Riverkeeper is the only nonprofit dedicated to protecting, restoring and connecting people to the Willamette River ecosystem in its entirety, including its many Portland-area tributaries, the Willamette River Water Trail and the Portland Harbor Superfund site.

Bottom Line for Portland

Last year, WR connected 2,000 people to the Willamette River for restoration, education and exploration; planted 100,000 native trees and shrubs in public lands and parks along the river; and brought a record-setting 5,000 public comments to the EPA in support of a cleanup for the Portland Harbor Superfund Site.

“We are so lucky to have a river like the Willamette flowing through the heart of Portland—and even luckier to have Willamette Riverkeeper keeping it beautiful!” —Travis Shappell, member and volunteer

How far does a $50 donation go with your organization?

$50 introduces a team of young Portlanders to on-the-river conservation and cleans up trash from 500 feet of the downtown Portland shoreline.
