River Clean Ups
Your donation allows us to haul 8 tons of trash and enough tires for 200 cars
                                        from the New River and its streams for cleaner water. 

In 2018 we hosted 24 clean ups, with 194 volunteers, who collected 32,660 pounds of trash and 801 tires.
In Virginia alone, we have organized 36 events, partnering with New River Trail State Park, Giles County, Grayson County, City of Radford, Friends of Claytor Lake, New River Wildlife Club and multiple outfitters to clean up 245 miles of river with 2,875 volunteers removing 82,400 pounds of trash including 4,396 tires since 2006.


River Builder
Your donation benefits the fishes and creatures in the River who depend on a
strong riparian buffer that supports habitat areas

In 2018 our River Builder program completed 10 planting sites with 17,802 trees and shrubs over 2.4 miles of Riverbank. In the same year, NRC protected an additional 280 acres of land. 

Water Quality Monitoring

on issues facing the river and inpires action. 

New River Water Watchers is a volunteer citizen science water quality monitoring program operating under state approved quality control and assurance plans approved in NC and VA.  In 2018 NRC trained 9 New Water Watchers, monitored 20 streams, took over 90 samples, and expanded into Virginia! 

Your donation allows us to advocate for local and state governments
to enact environmentally sound policy.
