Join us for Wild Rivers Night in Portland, Tuesday, November 16!
Did you hike up East Creek, marvel at the crystal clear water of Whiskey Creek or try out the natural stone water slide at Tate Creek on your Rogue River trip? These cold-water creeks are vital to the Rogue's health and salmon runs that are under threats from logging, mining, off-road vehicles and the warming climate. We invite you to join ECHO and American Rivers at Wild Rivers Night in Portland, OR for a reception and brief presentation to discuss efforts to protect the Rogue's cold creeks and other rivers in the Northwest.
The Rogue was one of the original eight rivers in the nation to receive federal protection under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968, and yet a river is only as healthy as its feeder streams and surrounding forests. Learn about the efforts of American Rivers to protect the pristine tributaries that the Rogue depends on and other rivers in our region that need your help!
American Rivers is the leading conservation organization fighting for healthy rivers so communities can thrive. American Rivers protects and restores America's rivers for the benefit of people, wildlife and nature. Founded in 1973, American Rivers has more than 65,000 members and supporters, with offices in Washington, DC and nationwide.
