    Do you value clean water, wild rivers, and healthy forests? Are you willing to lend your voice and your hands to protect fish and wildlife? Would you rather plant a tree than write a report? Are you excited to work with a team of ecologists, farmers, and entrepreneurs? If you answered yes to all of these questions, River Partners needs your help.
    River Partners is a California-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of rivers and floodplain ecosystems.

In doing so, we have planted over 2 million native trees and shrubs. Our staff is committed to getting things done. Since 2010, we have purchased $33 million worth of real estate throughout California. Once we acquire property, we implement native habitat restoration that benefits target species. After restoration is complete, River Partners donates the property to State and federal land management agencies to be preserved and protected in perpetuity. We believe in achieving results that directly benefit people and the environment.
    River Partners is a successful, financially stable, entrepreneurial nonprofit. We generate an average of $7 million in revenue each year by securing for-profit contracts and government grants. We are the largest, and most experienced, riparian habitat restoration contractor in California and we have built strong relationships with the agricultural, agency, and nonprofit communities as a result of our record of success. Our work has been recognized with several awards, including the Governors’ Environmental and Economic Leadership Award.
