Ospreys are back!

The ospreys are back, and they’re returning to rivers that are in better shape than they have been in decades, thanks to your ongoing support. And we need your support now more than ever to keep that momentum going. We are almost entirely funded by our member donations. We do not receive county or state funding.

We are, after all, the only citizen-based environmental organization dedicated solely to protecting the West and Rhode Rivers. We depend upon your membership contribution to help us keep your rivers clean through restoration projects and advocacy for better environmental policies, for enforcement of environmental law, and to keep sewage from our rivers by providing pump-out service to recreational boats.

We have a new benefit this year for boaters to make the pumpouts even easier: If you’re a $100 level member, you can make an appointment online and our pumpout boat operator will meet you at your dock for a free pumpout, all season long.
