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.
The Tualatin River is built for recreation. Perhaps the most family friendly river in the state, it is conveniently located within the Portland Metropolitan area and is very safe, having such a calm stream flow that from most boat launch locations it is navigable upstream or downstream and is an ideal environment for children to recreate on.
Tualatin Riverkeepers’ summer day camp program welcomes youth between the ages of 4 and 13. Camps foster an appreciation and love of nature through place-based, hands-on experiential learning: lessons and activities are designed to develop campers’ self-confidence, problem solving skills, and understanding of their ecological niche. While exploring, learning, and having fun, campers will build memories that last a lifetime!
For the Fall of 2016, we have a special urban forestry job training and internship program in cooperation with Centro Cultural, Muslim Education Trust, and Oregon Community Trees. Click here for details.
