About River Keepers:
River Keepers is a non-profit organization established in 1990 to protect and preserve the integrity and natural environment of the Red River of the North in the Fargo, ND - Moorhead, MN area. In addition, River Keepers is interested in the recreation and sustainable development uses of the Red River. River Keepers promotes a renewed vision for the Red River of the North through workshops, youth service-learning projects and advocacy. The primary goal of River Keepers is to demonstrate to the public that the Red River is an underutilized resource. River Keepers works "hand-in hand" with civic, corporate and political leaders, local watershed groups and the public at-large.

River Keepers has ample opportunities for individuals and groups to become involved in projects and activities that are hosted, sponsored or mentioned by River Keepers. To view a list of these projects and activities, visit http://www.riverkeepers.org/index.php/projects.

River Keepers also provides a list of online resources, including fact sheet and guides to the Red River's history, geology and recreation opportunities at http://www.riverkeepers.org/index.php/resources.

Please Note: River Keepers only works with the Red River of the North and its tributaries.
