Immerse 2022

A Virtual Benefit for The Freshwater Trust

The Freshwater Trust (TFT) has never been in business to do projects on some parts of rivers. We exist to fix entire basins within our lifetimes and to fundamentally change how freshwater conservation and restoration is practiced — not just in the U.S. — but globally. With 70% of the American West in moderate to extreme drought year after year, fish returns at record lows, and nearly 60% of rivers and streams not meeting Clean Water Act standards, the need for systems change could not be more acute. Despite the grim realities of the moment, we believe entire freshwater ecosystems can achieve resilience again within our lifetimes.

At Immerse 2022, our second annual virtual event, we invite you to celebrate and support TFT’s unique approach that is catalyzing transformational change on the ground right now and will alter the trajectory of all restoration and conservation to come. You will learn about our analytics and how they are being deployed to efficiently and effectively address tangible water problems, such as runoff and groundwater depletion. You’ll be introduced to a few of our inspirational leaders. Importantly, you will help ensure we have plentiful, resilient, freshwater systems now and for future generations.

We will debut several new videos at this event, including one featuring our planned work in the Crooked River basin and another showcasing our analytics platform that enables smart, precise action for rivers and will change the game for all restoration and conservation.


This will be a ticketed event with two tiers: An individual price ($20) and a VIP price ($100). VIP ticket holders will receive a package delivered to their home, which will include one of our Home Rivers shirts and a free pint from Salt & Straw Ice Cream. This package will only be available to VIP ticket holders. Please add your shirt size when checking out.
