River Keepers, a local non-profit dedicated to promoting respect for the river and surrounding nature, came about in 1990 when knowledge and appreciation for the Red River was at an all-time low. Disappointed in how the Red River was being treated and passionate about fixing it, the team set out to make a positive change that would end up impacting the entire community. Throughout the years, their projects have grown to encompass more aspects of sustainability, while their goals have stayed consistent. They work tirelessly to educate, celebrate, and nurture our Red River.
River Keepers embarked on a mission to renew value and reverence for the Red River as a vital part of the Fargo/Moorhead community and continue to serve every day. They focus on three main areas: education, stewardship, and leadership to help spread this message. By taking these steps, they have established a group of well-educated, passionate members of society that will continue this work for time to come.
