Friends of the River works to protect, restore, and preserve California's rivers and their watersheds, and advocates for sustainable water management.

Friends of the River was founded in 1973 during the struggle to save the Stanislaus River from New Melones Dam. It has led successful campaigns for the permanent protection of many California rivers and streams and has helped create many watershed-based citizens’ groups.
