Nisqually River Foundation


“Foster a healthy watershed through partnerships, engaging volunteers, and providing educational opportunities.”


The Nisqually River Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides the staffing and funding power for the Nisqually River Council. We are committed to the successful implementation of the Nisqually Watershed Stewardship Plan, and believe that a healthy community stems from environmental, social and economic sustainability.

The NRF currently has 7 Board Members who come from diverse backgrounds and fields of expertise, and bring unique perspectives to the Foundation operations.

In addition, the NRF has three full-time staff members, as well as one Washington Conservation Corps Volunteer. We also employ contract employees for several partner organizations–learn more below. Our projects range from youth and adult education to climate change adaptation to increasing recreation opportunities.

The support of our donors and volunteers is what keeps the NRF running. Learn more about ways that you can support our work.
