We believe a river with excellent water quality, abundant natural habitat, safe for fishing and recreation is a basic public right.
This is YOUR river!
Since 1996 we have proudly served as the eyes, ears, and voice of the Willamette River. Our programs, together with your support, enable us to effectively generate positive change.

New Property: We are thrilled to announce that we have received a wonderful donation of 107 acres of riverside land to be known as The Nicol Sanctuary. This new WR Greenway property is a few miles downstream of Willamette Mission State Park in Yamhill County. Over the next few months we will provide a primitive Water Trail campsite, begin removing invasive weeds from the property and develop plans for additional habitat restoration work. Thank you Gorham and Robin Nicol for the wonderful donation!
Protect, Restore, Enjoy: We are all Willamette Riverkeepers!
