The Rivers Need You

Your gift helps keep rivers flowing

How? Through our strategic grantmaking, you are helping communities clean rivers up and create more equitable access to them—through boat ramps, education and hiking trails.

Forever Our Rivers also helps improve degraded habitats by removing invasive trees and replanting landscapes along rivers and streams with willows, cottonwoods and other native species. Other efforts focus on stream restoration and upstream forest management.
