Willamette Riverkeeper


Willamette Riverkeeper’s sole mission is to protect and restore the Willamette River.  We believe that a river with good water quality, abundant natural habitat, and that serves as a safe source for fishing and swimming is a basic public right.  The Willamette River belongs to all of us and should be protected as such. 

Bottom Line for Portland

We protect the Willamette River, cleaning up trash and removing invasive species, and introducing Oregonians to their waterways. Our work means that Portland has a clean, safe, and accessible river for everyone to enjoy.


"We support WR because we value clean water, natural habitats, green space for people to enjoy nature and get outside.  WR does an excellent job promoting clean water, restoring nature greenways, and protecting our environment.  We try to do what we can to help their mission!"  Tamara and Eric Madsen, Donors and Volunteers. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Marginalized communities are disproportionately affected by water pollution, an injustice that we combat through hands-on cleanups and legal advocacy. We also create opportunities for historically under-invited communities to join us on the river for special events like the Latinx Paddle, Pride Paddle, and Recovery Paddle. Our mission is to engage all Oregonians in maintaining a safe and healthy river, and DEI issues must always be centered in these efforts.
