River Partners has a track record of turning new partners into allies for river conservation. We work to bring farmers, federal and state agencies, other nonprofit organizations and local communities together to harness our collective strengths.

I've had the pleasure of working with River Partners to deliver win-win results for communities, agriculture, public safety and wildlife. Water use sustainability solutions in California require collaborative leadership. River Partners is a visionary partner on flood protection, water and habitat conservation projects that demonstrate what success looks like.
