The Annual Benefit for the Tualatin Riverkeepers
Join the Tualatin Riverkeepers at Nike’s Tiger Woods Center as we celebrate your personal connection to the Tualatin River. Our river faces some big demands and TRK’s mission has never been more important.
April 2, 2016 – Celebrate the many ways we connect to the river.
Tualatin Riverkeepers is a non-profit organization dedicated to holistic watershed management for the benefit of our communities. TRK takes a proactive approach to advocacy for clean waters, empowers the diversity of stakeholders in the Tualatin river basin to care for our unique river, and educates youth and future activists with creative curriculum inspired by local ecological traditions. We seek partnerships with agencies and landowners throughout the watershed to conserve the lands and biodiversity found within the broader landscape and analyze watershed issues from the floodplain’s perspective. As such, we find strength from farmer to ecologist’s viewpoints and believe bringing multiple parties together based on shared common ground will enhance sustainable management of the Tualatin watershed.
TRK’s programs include watershed watch, environmental education, restoration, and recreation. The Tualatin River and its 27 creeks provide drinking water to nearly 400,000 homes and businesses in Washington County as well as water for industry, agriculture and a rich variety of wildlife including coho salmon, steelhead trout, beaver, painted turtles, river otters, bobcats, fox, and deer, amongst other species.
