Since 1978, Save The River has been the leading grassroots advocacy organization working to protect the 1000 Islands region of the St. Lawrence River. In 2004, Save The River was designated the Upper St. Lawrence Riverkeeper and is a member of the international Waterkeeper Alliance.

For 35 years, Save The River has been the leading environmental advocate working to protect and preserve the Upper St. Lawrence River. With thousands of year-round and seasonal members, on both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the River, Save The River works to ensure that the St. Lawrence River and 1000 Islands are protected for future generations. Advocacy positions range from acting as a watchdog on St. Lawrence Seaway issues to fighting for environmentally sound water levels regulation and are based on independent science and community outreach.
