We are a passionate group of adventurers who believe in the power of rivers and the need to protect them. We were born on the river, we are inspired by rivers, and we believe in the transformative power that rivers have on all of us.

 

We connect people to rivers through hands-on action and education to make a positive, lasting impact on river conservation.

Boundaries don't protect rivers, people do. 

- Aristotle

WHAT WE DO

Protect Our Rivers works to make a lasting impact on river health through active conservation, education, and access. We organize river cleanups across Colorado and beyond, and provide hands-on educational tools to teach young river stewards about micro-trash and pollution, rural and urban watersheds, principles of Leave No Trace, and human-caused problems rivers face today. Our organization is driven by the belief that everyone has the power to make a difference and that difference matters. Our programs connect people to rivers and empower them to take action, with the hope that our work will have a long-lasting impact on river health, and we can pass forward the resources and experiences rivers provide us all.
