River Network

River Network’s mission is to empower and unite people and communities to protect and restore rivers and other waters that sustain the health of our country. We envision a future where everyone has access to plentiful clean water, providing prosperity, health and recreational opportunities for all. We work for the day when all people feel responsibility for their local river, lake, wetland or bay and have the capacity to effectively protect those resources.

How do volunteers make a difference for this organization?

River Network is a national organization that is at the hub of a growing national movement that includes nearly 2,000 state and local watershed protection groups throughout the U.S., including several dozen in Oregon.

Our current major programs include:

  • A “Blue Cities” initiative to help our network of groups create rain gardens, restore wetlands and floodplains, and decouple storm water and sewer systems to keep stormwater pollution out of our rivers;
  • The Campaign to Sustain Water and Energy, which is fostering policy innovation on water and energy conservation in states throughout the U.S.
  • An Urban Waters Restoration initiative in five major cities throughout the U.S.
