Making award-winning progress

Members of the Willamette restoration community accept the 2012 Thiess International Riverprize.

Our partners gained international attention in 2012, when the Willamette River won the International RiverFoundation's prestigious Thiess International Riverprize. In 2018, the Willamette restoration community was recognized as a finalist for the Arbor Day Foundation's national Headwaters Award.
