2019 - A Year In Clean Water

Sound Rivers

Posted on December 31st, 2019

Happy New Year’s Eve! As we reflect back on 2019 here at Sound Rivers, we know that all we accomplished this year was because of YOU! We continued our successful Swim Guide program, expanding to Raleigh and Kinston; we broke ground on new stormwater mitigation projects in partnerships with area schools; we reached a groundbreaking settlement with NC DOT over their 540 expansion project, protecting your waterways and setting historic precedent; and so much more!

We welcomed two new staff members, Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell and Environmental Projects Coordinator Clay Barber, who have hit the ground running and inspired all of us with their innovative ideas and energy.

Our Taste of Coastal Carolina, Kids River Fest, and Oyster Roast events brought communities together in support of clean water.

New board members brought their expertise and commitment to clean water, and we were thrilled to welcome Adrian Atkinson, Anne-Marie Holder, and Catherine Kastleman to the Sound Rivers Board of Directors.

It’s hard to believe 2020 starts tomorrow – we will be working to protect your waterways throughout the year, but your support makes it all happen. Thank you!
