WWD Communityaction 233Rogue Riverkeeper believes in mobilizing communities to protect our public waters. Be it organizing comments on behalf of Rogue Riverkeeper members, rallying people to attend public hearings, or coordinating community efforts to address water quality problems, we help activate the public to benefit our streams and fish.

Volunteer for the Rogue: Our Riverwatch program is designed to mobilize volunteers to be Rogue Riverkeeper’s eyes and ears on the water throughout the Rogue and Chetco Basins.  Our goal is to amplify the value of your observations by combining your efforts with other observers and giving Rogue Riverkeeper staff important information on watershed health and possible violations of local, state and federal regulations.  We use the information to advocate for cleaner water throughout the region.

Ashland Storm Drain Marking: In 2011, we are coordinating the Ashland community to mark all storm drains in the city with “no dumping, drains to creek” markers. Rogue Riverkeeper is mobilizing dozens of volunteers to adopt neighborhoods, place markers and hang notices on doors to educate people that our stormdrains flow directly into our creeks. 

Bacteria testing: We also coordinate community members to engage in our field work, including bacteria sourcing projects.
