Keeping Waterways Safe and Clean for Paddlers and Outdoor Enthusiasts

Minimal Impact, Waterway Management and Consulting

River Rangers offer scouting, planning, management, remediation and documentation for all your projects located within streams and rivers. We manage the trees and natural debris to protect human safety and property while improving aquatic habitat and the riparian. No one has a lower impact on the environment during and after the project….NO ONE!

Your Only Choice for Eco-focused, Waterway Debris Management

Our water resources are one of our greatest assets. We must protect our resources, as we strive to keep waterways free from obstructions, which impact flooding and runoff. 

River Rangers is different. River Rangers is a 501(c)3 registered, nonprofit organization. We approach each project with two key concerns; human safety and environmental stability. 

River Rangers specializes in low impact debris remediation. Remediation often includes repurposing debris to create or improve aquatic habitat or for natural bank stabilization.

We go where normal contractors cannot, to find the debris and hazards. Combining on the ground, in the water,  and aerial drone technology, we see the project from every angle.



Our proprietary reporting methods allow for comprehensive planning to address hazards and properly manage the waterway. 



Our decades of experience give unique insight to how to manage a debris remediation projects, including permit acquisition.



In addition to managing the waterway project, we can act as an authorized agent for projects, which reduces conflict between governing agencies.

From our Founder

“As a teenager, I witnessed the deadly affects of unmanaged debris in the river. I vowed to create a solution, to keep our waterways safe and clean for paddlers and pay-it-forward for future generations.”

Rando Morgan

Founder and CEO

I have seen first hand how the River Rangers work and I'm very impressed with their energy and dedication to our rivers. Their initial report on the condition of an 11.1 mile section of the Great Miami River will allow for safer passage of our volunteers during the Clean Sweep of the Great Miami River next month. Rando and Burn are ready to help and we look forward to having them with us in the future.
Jeff Lange
Founder/Executive Director, Protecting Our Water Ways (POWW)
We are excited to partner with the River Rangers to bring Wilderness Adventure Kayaking experiences to children, adults, and veterans with disabilities. The Rangers are all trained and certified in adaptive paddling. We are also partnering with them to bring corporate training programs to promote leadership, volunteerism, and inclusion. They even gave me a cool, honorary Ranger nickname – Rio!

It was amazing to see the River Rangers stewardship in action. These river advocates passionately protect and restore waterways to ensure paddlers’ safety. I loved every minute volunteering and learning more about Ohio’s gorgeous riverways.
