Tualatin Riverkeepers is a community-based organization working to protect and restore Oregon’s Tualatin River system. TRK builds watershed stewardship through education, public access to nature, restoration and advocacy.
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.
TRK is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible nonprofit charity and a member of the Waterkeeper Alliance and EarthShare Oregon. Your donation to Tualatin Riverkeepers helps us engage the people of the Tualatin Valley to protect, restore, and experience our special river. Please donate generously.
