Neighborhood Water Watch Highlighted in New Video

Watch our new video about Neighborhood Water Watch! Since 2010, we have been working with NWW partners to improve water quality in urban streams and protect human health in surrounding communities. This project would not be possible without the dedication of hundreds of volunteers that collect water samples and members and donors who support our work. If you are interested in learning more about this program, contact Mike Meyer.

Donate to CRK’s Floating Classroom Scholarship Program!

We believe that educational opportunities like the floating classrooms should be offered to all students – regardless of their economic status. This is why we are committed to providing scholarships for underserved youth in our communities to participate in the Lake Lanier Aquatic Learning Center and West Point Lake Floating Classroom.

This summer, through partnerships with groups like Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCA and others, we are teaching students where their drinking water comes from and how they can make a difference in protecting our river.

Please join us in making a difference in the life of a child, by making a donation to support this very important program – $25 provides one scholarship seat. Together we will make a positive impact on the future of our Chattahoochee River!
