Graves Creek Shot

Rogue Riverkeeper works to protect and restore clean water and native fish in the Rogue watershed. We work to safeguard the health of the Rogue River, using fundamental environmental protections such as the Clean Water Act to improve water quality across the basin's 3.3 million acres. 


Rogue Riverkeeper was founded in 2008 as a program of the Klamath Siskiyou Wildlands Center (KS Wild) to provide public oversight of Clean Water Act implementation in the Rogue Basin. We are a member of the  Waterkeeper Alliance, which is an international network of advocates who fight for clean water in over 300 waterways worldwide. The guiding principle of Waterkeepers is that without water, there can be no life, and without clean water, there can be no healthy life. We all work for swimmable, drinkable, fishable waters. 


Our Vision


Our vision is of a clean, free flowing, healthy river where the Rogue’s scenic beauty, recreational, fish, and wildlife values are protected and restored for future generations. 


We build broad-based community support that fosters and nurtures community responsibility for good stewardship of our river. 


We fill a critical niche in the Rogue Basin as the watchdog, steward, and voice of the River and watershed.


Our Mission


Our mission is to protect and restore clean water and fish populations in the Rogue River Basin through advocacy, accountability, and community engagement.
