40 Stories for 40 Years

Four decades of advocacy for our waterways — and we couldn’t have done it without the many, many people who have contributed their time, energy and expertise to help us fulfill our continuing mission for clean water. In gratitude for their dedication to the clean-water fight, we’re taking this opportunity to highlight some of their stories in our 40th anniversary year.

From founders of the Neuse River and Pamlico-Tar River foundations to incredible supporters who’ve joined along the way, 40 Stories for 40 Years is a look back at familiar faces, whose passion for the environment and the beautiful rivers, lakes and creeks of eastern North Carolina has been, and continues to be, instrumental in keeping our waters swimmable, fishable and drinkable.
