The Passaic River Coalition seeks to improve water quality; protect our water supplies; promote river restoration; reduce flood damages; educate the public about our waters; preserve environmentally important lands in our watershed; and educate the public about the environmental, cultural and historical heritage of our natural landscapes and rivers within the Passaic River watershed, including our historical landmark headquarters, Willow Hall. Our mission objectives, important for all people, are especially needed in communities most harmed by society's failure to achieve them. Therefore, we strive for diversity, inclusion and environmental justice for all.
