Join the discussion: Building a future for a healthy Willamette River system

As the Willamette River Initiative enters its final year, we’re developing a strategy to continue supporting river health in the Willamette Basin. A team of advisors has been working for the past five months to conceptualize a new evolution of the Willamette River Initiative that is shaped and led by the community. View our planning timeline. We're hosting several upcoming meetings and webinars to share our ideas and hear yours. Please join us to help shape this new era for the river. We'll use our newsletter to share registration information for each of these events, so subscribe if you haven't already.
