And Tasty Beer!
Spokane Riverkeeper is teaming up with Numerica Credit Union to raise awareness of the ongoing Riverkeeper efforts to preserve and protect the Spokane River. As a member of the worldwide Waterkeeper Alliance, Spokane Riverkeeper is a vigilant guardian of the Spokane River and its watershed while being an effective advocate for the restoration and preservation of the river’s ecological health and aesthetic integrity.
Riverkeeper IPA, made by River City Brewing, is a collaboration effort to raise funds and awareness of this important work. A portion of proceeds from the sale of this beer will be donated to Spokane Riverkeeper.
For a Fishable and Swimmable Spokane River
Spokane Riverkeeper is a program of the Center for Justice, which is a Spokane-based, for-impact legal advocacy organization. Riverkeeper’s mission is to protect and restore the health of the Spokane River Watershed, and accomplishes that goal through collaborating, educating, and when necessary, litigating.
As a member of the worldwide Waterkeeper Alliance Movement, Spokane Riverkeeper’s first priority, day-to-day, is to defend the river against pollution and polluters.
The long-term vision of Spokane Riverkeeper is to restore the river to its natural state, undiminished by human activities that cause pollution or divert water from the river. Our mission recognizes that protecting the river and securing its future as an ecological and spiritual resource for the region is best secured by working with current allies and enlisting new allies in the causes to which we’re committed.
To reduce the effect of human activity on the river and expedite the restoration of water quality and water quantity.
To be a force for institutional change among local and state decision makers and industrial river users to improve stream flows and water quality.
To educate and inspire citizens about the importance of river issues and the need for river protection.
