The New River winds its way through three states and countless communities who have depended on its bounty for generations. We are here to protect it and to ensure that the waters that feed it are clean; that the land supports vibrant plants and animals; and that the communities that rely on it are passionate and empowered advocates for a healthy New River.

Now in our 40th year, we believe that there is great economic and recreational opportunity in the New River Watershed. But we also know that the complete health and full protection of this ancient river will only come from a collective vigilance that speaks for the River. To make this happen, our strategic priorities are...

  • Sharing and Fostering Research
  • Educating and Inspiring People to Act
  • Protecting and Restoring the River and its Tributaries
