About Us

Who We Are

River Keepers grew from a desire to rediscover the Red River’s heritage, and to teach people to again appreciate the Red as a living River. In earlier decades of Fargo-Moorhead history, people used and appreciated the Red River for a variety of activities. In later years, people lost that appreciation for the river which is the dominant geographical feature in the community, and began to consider it a liability to be avoided.

What We Do

  • Advocate for awareness, appreciation and stewardship of the Red River.
  • Advocate for riverfront development projects.
  • Encourage and promote River recreation.
  • Help develop economic opportunities in the River corridor.
  • Encourage development of recreation amenities in the River corridor.
  • Educate residents about the River and its environment.
