Lawsuit Shuts Down Coal Plant

On October 15 Oregon’s only coal-fired power plant officially shut down. You made this happen. It took a people-powered campaign and lawsuit brought by the Earthrise Law Center on behalf of Columbia Riverkeeper and our partners to end decades of dangerous air pollution at Portland General Electric’s Boardman coal-fired power plant


New Online Store Supports Riverkeeper, Local Authors

Last month, Columbia Riverkeeper launched its online store in support of Pacific Northwest authors, peppered in with our debut Riverkeeper hats, all perfect additions for your next gift or day at the river. All purchases support our work to protect clean water and restore healthy ecosystems.


Kalama Refinery: A Climate-Wrecker

This month, with your support, thousands of people spoke out against the world’s largest proposed fracked gas-to-methanol refinery in Kalama, WA. Together, we demanded a cleaner, healthier future.


Riverkeeper Awarded Pollution Prevention Grant

Columbia Riverkeeper is one of 14 grant recipients to receive the Environmental Protection Agency’s new Columbia River Basin Restoration Funding Assistance Program. Our project will focus on outreach and education through online-, field- and classroom-based programs to inspire students and community members to prevent toxic pollution and protect water quality.


Coalition Spotlight: Power Past Fracked Gas

Columbia Riverkeeper partnered with over 30 organizations to deliver a powerful argument against the Kalama methanol refinery. The Power Past Fracked Gas coalition is a growing network of climate, health, faith, environmental justice, and community-led organizations who are pushing back on projects like the Kalama refinery, the Jordan Cove LNG project, and the Tacoma LNG proposal.
