Member Organizations

The Water Protection Network was founded in 2001 out of the recognition that we must work together if we are to put a stop to environmentally destructive and wasteful water projects. Today, The Network has more than 235 dedicated national, regional, and local organizational members from 43 states, the District of Columbia, and the Virgin Islands working together to transform federal water policies and protect and restore the nation’s vitally important rivers, wetlands, and coasts.

Membership is open to all non-profit and non-governmental organizations, learn how to join the WPN today >>
