THE STORY:

Our Work

The Catawba Riverkeeper protects, advocates for, and educates about the Catawba River through a variety of programs administered by CRF staff and a network of volunteers. Information about these programs is provided below.

There are three primary components to the activities of the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation: protection, education and advocacy. We have received numerous Awards for our programs and Accomplishments

In 2008, the Catawba River was named by American Rivers as the most endangered river in the United States.  It is important to understand that Catawba is NOT currently the most polluted river in the United States, but rather it was identified as the river that is most threatened by current trends of development and poor water management.  American River specifically identified both water quantity and water quality concerns related to current development practices in the Catawba basin.  When announcing the dubious distinction, Gerrit Jöbsis, Southeast Regional Director of American Rivers, observed that  “This isn’t a message of gloom and doom, but rather an opportunity for all of us to look in the mirror, and make a substantive and sustainable change in our lives.”

Help Aveda now by making a donation online at at our Crowdrise donation site at: www.crowdrise.com/avedaearthmonthcharlotte2013  or purchase a ticket to attend either the Yoga in the Park (featuring Arrichion Yoga Studio) or our 5K Walk/Run on April 28th. Tickets for each event are $10 and 100% of the proceeds raised will benefit Catawba Riverkeeper.
