The Western Rivers Conservancy has a great tagline — “Sometimes to save a river, you have to buy it” — although it does require a quick caveat for the literal-minded reader: No, you can’t actually buy a river.
But you can buy the land that surrounds it, and that’s what the Portland-based organization does, in the process protecting river ecosystems in 11 Western states: Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.
