Friends of the River Foundation (FOR) is California’s only statewide river conservation organization.

Our members, people who love rivers, are critical to the success of our river-saving efforts. Members give us clout when we stand up in public policy meetings and speak out for clean, free-flowing rivers, confidence that the work we do every day is important and valued, and the financial resources necessary to continue protecting, sustaining and restoring California’s rivers.
