Willamette Riverkeeper is a non-profit organization that works to protect and restore the Willamette River's water quality and habitat. The mission of Riverkeeper is "to make the Willamette River watershed healthy for fish and wildlife, safe for fishing and swimming, and to inform, involve and connect Oregonians with their river." Founded in 1996, Willamette Riverkeeper belongs to a network of Riverkeeper organizations that work toward similar goals across the country, predicated on the belief that our rivers belong to all of us and should be protected from harm, pollution and habitat destruction.
