Welcome to Inland Empire Waterkeeper! 

Inland Empire Waterkeeper is a grassroots, non-profit water quality organization with a mission to enhance and protect the quality of the waterways within the Upper Santa Ana River Watershed. This is accomplished through five program tenets: advocacy, education, research, restoration, and enforcement. Established in 2005, Inland Empire Waterkeeper is a chapter of Orange County Coastkeeper, which oversees the Orange County portion of the watershed, and is a separately licensed member of the international Waterkeeper Alliance.

Inland Empire Waterkeeper's vision is to achieve a sustainable watershed free of pollution and a community of motivated water stewards to ensure swimmable, drinkable, fishable waters within the Upper Santa Ana River Watershed. 

Rivercamp 2018

Rivercamp is making its splash back into Riverside for its 5th year! RiverCamp is a one of a kind interactive environmental science camp that provides young students with the opportunity to connect with nature while learning about important concepts in ecology and earth science through hands-on activities. Children, ages 5-12, will learn about their watershed while exploring the natural treasure, the Santa Ana River. Rivercampers will go on nature walks, splash in the river, meet live animals, and learn how to be better environmental stewards. Students will have the chance to interact with zoologists, geologists, biologists, and more!
