We conserve land through outreach, restoration, and research.


Friends of the Napa River (FONR) was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in early 1994. The organizers worked together through the years on many different concerns about the Napa River such as flood protection, boating, fishing, watershed restoration, trails, festivals, and riverfront development.

FONR is a diverse community group whose mission is to be

“the community’s voice for the responsible protection, restoration, development and celebration of the Napa River and its watershed.”
