After 10 years of collaboration toward a healthier Willamette, we're laying the groundwork for a new network to support long-term progress in our river basin.
A new era for the Willamette River health movement
Why a network?

A healthy Willamette River system is crucial to the Oregon way of life. But our river needs coordinated stewardship and investment to continue providing for Oregonians into the future.

With an activated community and collaborative vision for a healthy Willamette River system, we can tackle the problems of the present while rising to meet new challenges.
