Your donations to Sound Rivers support our work to protect and preserve the beauty and health of the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico rivers and provide critical funding for programs like Swim Guide (keeping you in the know about your water quality), advocacy (working with North Carolina leaders to create stronger protections for your clean water), environmental programs (implementing innovating solutions to pollution and increasing public access to your rivers), and more.

Thank you — your support keeps your water clean!
