We work to protect and preserve natural river ecosystems—through active conservation and education. Our organization is built upon three distinct areas of impact that work together to improve the rivers in our country.
We roll up our sleeves, get our feet wet and our clothes dirty to make a real difference, one river at a time. We organize
river cleanups throughout the Rocky Mountains and beyond and empower people to lead cleanup events in their own communities. Since we started in 2021, we've organized over 70 cleanups to remove over 49,000 lbs of trash from rivers and streams.
Active protection for rivers starts with understanding them. We help distribute important information about river issues, river health, and river care, for those who float, paddle, swim, and fish them, or those who simply enjoy the role they play as a healthy, natural backdrop to our everyday lives. We also have a watershed education program we can teach in elementary and middle schools.
We believe everyone should have access to healthy rivers. Because once you have experienced the natural power and beauty for yourself, you will be forever changed and thus motivated to help us in our mission. Whether it's joining us for a cleanup or getting out on a day trip, we're here to help get you on the river. Shoot us a note to learn more.
We were born in Cataract Canyon, when we learned that one river trip can change your entire life.
We are inspired by our undeniable love for the outdoors and, specifically, the riverways that feed our planet and our souls. We are fueled by our common passion to make a positive impact in the world, one river at a time. But we can’t do it alone. Our rapidly growing base of amazing volunteers, like-minded corporate partners and other organizations that share in our mission play a tremendous part in the difference we can all make, together.
