Welcome

Rivers for Change is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit made up of a passionate group of river enthusiasts dedicated to changing the way people think about and interact with water. Through adventure, conservation and education we work to connect individuals and communities to rivers.

We envision a world where people and communities are active stewards of river systems with a holistic understanding of their interconnectedness and interdependence.

Get Involved!

Rivers for Change is a mostly volunteer run organization. We are always looking for new individuals and ways to help create opportunities to unite people to rivers through shared experience, story, and media.

Join us at one of our EVENTS throughout the year or help out behind the scenes.
