The newest release of the Pacific Rivers newsletter, Free Flow: Spring 2022!
The spring issue includes a status update from the Chair of the Board and in-depth reports from Board Members on current projects, including our Snake River Clean Water Act settlement. We also remember devoted board members who have recently passed away.
We're proud of this issue of Free Flow and the work and advocacy it celebrates. We hope you have time to check it out and find the essays, updates, and beautiful photos inspiring and informative.
Our latest film celebrates Senator Ron Wyden’s efforts to permanently protect nearly 4700 miles of free-flowing Oregon Rivers nominated by our fellow citizens as Wild and Scenic. These new Wild and Scenic Rivers will permanently protect our clean water and native species, improve fire resiliency, honor Tribal co-management, guarantee ongoing recreational and economic opportunity, and firmly establish Oregon as the country’s undisputed leader in permanent river protection.
As Senator Wyden explains in our new film, the River Democracy Act is about protecting Oregon’s treasures and, on our watch, truly doing something meaningful for the future of all our kids and grandkids.
The mission of Pacific Rivers is to protect and restore the watershed ecosystems of the West to ensure river health, biodiversity and clean water for present and future generations.
