Promoting Healthy Watersheds
Through Community Involvement in
Stewardship, Restoration and Education

What is the River Exchange?

The River Exchange is a not-for-profit organization located in Dunsmuir, California. We promote healthy watersheds through community involvement in stewardship, restoration and education.

Our work is focused in the headwater streams of the Sacramento and McCloud Rivers, which originate high on the slopes of Mount Shasta and the surrounding mountain ranges. The quality of life in this region depends on these outstanding water resources, which draw people to these rivers for world-class fly fishing, boating, spiritual renewal, and enjoyment of our stunning natural landscapes.

Established in 1996 in the aftermath of the disastrous Cantara Loop spill, the River Exchange serves the community as a catalyst for action. We provide opportunities for individuals, communities, and businesses to take an active role in stewardship and protection of water resources through watershed education programs, watershed restoration, and community events like our annual Great River Clean-Up.
