Make your Splash in Virginia!
Join the New River Conservancy for our inaugural Virginia Splash for the Cash!
The success of the North Carolina annual event has caused a ripple effect downstream in Virginia!
After a month long team fundraising effort, NRC invites you to join us for a celebratory float down the River on August 24, 2019!
The money you raise will directly support New River Conservancy's citizen science water quality monitoring program, The New River Water Watchers.
Fundraisers will be entered into a raffle for prizes we will announce at a later date!
To date, New River Water Watchers have trained over 100 volunteer monitors, collected data from 80 sites throughout the watershed, created the only database with water quality from all three states in the watershed, and in 2018 we expanded into Virginia!
