to you we give thanks!


In this season of giving thanks, all of us at Willamette Riverkeeper want you to know that everything you do for and with us throughout the year does not go unnoticed, nor is it unappreciated. Thank you for all you do, from participating in events, to volunteering to pick up trash, to paddling with us on a sunny (or not so sunny) piece of the river. Each and every one of you helps us to fulfill the mission of Willamette Riverkeeper.

As this year draws to a close, please consider making a donation, becoming a monthly donor or making an additional donation to Willamette Riverkeeper.

The ways in which you can give to and support Willamette Riverkeeper are listed below, and can also be found on our donation page. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

With much gratitude,

The WR Team: Travis, Kate, Marci, Michelle, Heather and Richard
