Pacific Rivers promotes healthy watersheds.

We are a nonprofit advancing public policies that protect clean water and healthy rivers. We ensure communities have clean, cool drinking water, watersheds are resilient in the face of climate change, and native fish and aquatic wildlife can thrive. Gifts to Pacific Rivers are tax deductible and support our conservation work in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, and Northern California.

Founded in 1987 by two whitewater rafting guides, Pacific Rivers is one of the most respected river conservation groups in the region. Our successes include: helping pass the largest Wild and Scenic Rivers designation in the Lower 48; including protections for rivers and water in the Northwest Forest Plan; helping protect Oregon Coast Coho under the Endangered Species Act; establishing the nation's first fish-related eco-label, Salmon-Safe; and more.

Our current priorities include: comprehensive reform of the Oregon Forest Practices Act, which governs logging on private timberlands; maintaining or enhancing aquatic protections on federal forests as the Northwest Forest Plan is revised; maintaining or enhancing river and water protections on state forests; modernizing the Columbia River Treaty; and more.
