New Sponsor – Potomac Riverkeeper Network
Written by Ted Tait on September 17, 2023
I’m happy to announce that we have a new Underwriter at WWER. The Colonial Beach Community Foundation has provided the funding for a Gold level sponsorship for the Potomac Riverkeeper Network. Their mission is to protect the public’s right to clean water in the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers and their tributaries. They stop pollution to enhance the safety of our drinking water, protect healthy river habitats, and enhance public use and enjoyment.
Potomac Riverkeeper, Inc. was founded in 2000 by a group of local community members who saw the need for stronger enforcement of federal, state, and local clean water protections in local rivers through grassroots advocacy and legal action. Riverkeepers are the eyes and ears of the rivers, the voice of the rivers, and the experts in the rivers, , protecting the public’s rights to clean water. Encompassing the skills of scientists, teachers, law officers, fishermen, and paddlers, Riverkeepers combine a profound knowledge of their waterway, matched with a relentless commitment to protecting clean water and the rule of law.
We are also working on some collaboration ideas with the Riverkeepers. More to come…
