Freshwater Trust

The Freshwater Trust actively works to restore and protect entire freshwater ecosystems. Our goal is simple: return health to every river and stream in the state of Oregon.

The Freshwater Trust has a history of doing science-based restoration projects that improve the health of Oregon's freshwater ecosystems. They do on-the-ground restoration projects on rivers and streams in Oregon. A restoration project usually means returning a river to its natural state – adding large logs to create spawning pools for native fish or planting trees along the riverbeds to create shade and reduce the water’s temperature. We also work with willing landowners to keep more water in our rivers and streams.

With more than 30 years of on-the-ground experience, The Freshwater Trust is the largest restoration-focused organization in the Pacific Northwest, and the second largest conservation group based in Oregon. We have a unique mix of in-house staff expertise, ranging from fish biologists and hydrologists to GIS experts, business and conservation systems analysts, attorneys and ecosystem services analysts.
