We'll Double Your Donation!

As spring showers rain down upon us, they bring new growth and give us the opportunity to reflect. This seasonal change serves as an excellent reminder of our need for water and the value of clean water for fish and wildlife, agriculture, recreation, and for clean drinking water.

One of Mountain Rose Herbs’ long-standing non-profit partners, McKenzie River Trust, works resolutely to protect watersheds in western Oregon. By protecting special lands, restoring natural ecosystems, and connecting people to the places they care about, the McKenzie River Trust has guarded this precious and wondrous resource.
