Sometimes To Save A River You Have To Buy It

Sometimes To Save A River You Have To Buy It

Special ZOOM Presentation with Jim Cox of the Western Rivers Conservancy

Jim Cox, Director of Donor Relations for Western Rivers Conservancy, will make a presentation called “Sometimes To Save A River You Have To Buy It.”  Western Rivers Conservancy has been working for more than 32 years to conserve and protect lands on more than 170 rivers and streams in nine western states. The presentation will focus on how WRC purchases properties across the West to protect and conserve vital river ecosystems and to provide compatible public use and enjoyment.  Included in the program is stunning photography with updates on many of the organization’s most recent projects including our new acquisition at McDonald's Ferry on the John Day River and our work conserving three miles of the Williamson River in Oregon; projects on Idaho’s Salmon and Snake Rivers; and projects on Washington’s Methow, Nisqually and Wenatchee River systems among others.


Jim joined Western Rivers Conservancy as Director of Donor Relations in 2011. He is a past steering committee co-chair of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon and a former manager of the Oregon Cultural Trust.  He supports numerous conservation organizations including Trout Unlimited, Flyfishers Club of Oregon, The Freshwater Trust, Water Watch, and the Native Fish Society. In his free time, you can find him fly fishing on his favorite western streams and occasionally playing a mean trumpet solo or two with the Steelhead Stalkers jazz band.
