Welcome to Yadkin Riverkeeper®
I am pleased and proud to be your Riverkeeper. I have been working for over 20 years to protect rivers and wildlife in North Carolina. I am committed to working hard to provide a clean and sustainable river.
My promise to you:
- I will be dedicated to the protection of this river and its surrounding environment for our children, our community, and the aquatic life that depends on this river.
- I understand that water is a finite resource and less than 1% of all the water on the planet is available fresh water. I will communicate the idea that clean water is in the public interest.
- I will do what I can to protect the river when it is threatened. I will hold myself and others accountable to meet the goals that are needed to protect this river.
- I will listen and learn.
- I will not compromise the long-term health of the Yadkin River.
- I will maintain a consistent physical presence on the water.
- I will work with my community and others in the watershed to advocate on behalf of the river.
- I will investigate problems, act as a citizen scientist and attorney so that future generations can enjoy this important resource.
- I will become an expert on the river.
- I will encourage dialogue.
- I will be the eyes and ears of the Yadkin, and provide a strong voice for the river . . . but I need your help.
