Friends of the Cedar River Watershed (FCRW) is an award-winning 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the protection and restoration of the greater Cedar River / Lake Washington Watershed. The watershed is home to more than 83 species of fish and wildlife and 14 species of concern such as sockeye salmon and the endangered Chinook salmon. It is also home to 22% of Washington’s human population. The watershed is our home. Its future is ours.
Our roots are in the water. The 143 square miles of the protected upper watershed provide clean drinking water to over one million King County residents. It is unique—one of only six protected municipal watersheds in the country and the only one owned by the people who depend on it. FCRW began in 1996 with the charter to support the construction of the Cedar River Watershed Education Center, and since then has evolved to promote stewardship and education about the importance restoring the Cedar River / Lake Washington Watershed.
Through innovative collaborations with municipalities, schools, individuals, and businesses, we link local citizens to environmental stewardship efforts including volunteer habitat restoration events, salmon recovery efforts, and conservation and education programs in order to preserve these finite resources for future generations.
