"The Tualatin Riverkeepers are an incredible asset to the residents and communities of the Tualatin Watershed.

Tualatin Riverkeepers (TRK) is dedicated to holistic watershed management for the benefit of our communities. TRK takes a proactive approach to advocacy for clean waters, empowers the diversity of stakeholders in the Tualatin river basin to care for our unique river, and educates youth and future activists with a creative curriculum inspired by local ecological traditions. We seek partnerships with agencies and landowners throughout the watershed to conserve the lands and biodiversity found within the broader landscape and analyze watershed issues from the floodplain’s perspective. As such, we find strength from farmer to ecologist’s viewpoints and believe bringing multiple parties together based on shared common ground will enhance sustainable management of the Tualatin watershed.

The Tualatin River is a beautiful natural jewel flowing through Washington County. From its headwaters in the coastal hills to its confluence with the Willamette, it connects forests, farms, industry, cities and towns. The river provides that most precious of natural resources - clean water.  And the Tualatin also provides a connection to nature for the region's diverse and growing population.

Please help us engage the people of the Tualatin Valley to protect, restore, and experience this special river.
