Tangible Results. Measurable Impact.

River Partners is helping lead a fundamental redesign of California’s approach to water management, working with our rivers’ natural systems to restore floodplains and regenerate riparian forests.

We provide a broad ripple effect of flood protection, expanded wildlife habitat for fragile species, carbon sequestration, green jobs, open space and conservation of precious water resources.

Our groundbreaking approach unites cutting-edge science and agricultural practices with large-scale habitat restoration. The innovative partnerships we forge across sectors bring life back to rivers and nourish the ecosystems, economies and communities of California.

Together, we can do so much more.
