We give new life to rivers.

Native tree by native tree, acre by acre, River Partners reforestation projects grow a resilient future for people, wildlife and our planet. Our groundbreaking approach unites cutting-edge ecological science with farming practices to bring new life to floodplains and river forests at a pace and scale that matter.

Our innovative partnerships nourish the ecosystems, economies and communities of California by creating green jobs, expanding flood safety and healthy open space, building wildlife habitat for fragile species, conserving freshwater resources, and storing carbon in growing river forests.

Together, we can do so much more.
