Lick Creek needs our help! The Durham watershed is being inundated with runoff from the MANY developments currently being built (there are more than a dozen right now). Tell Durham City Council to put a pause on approving new developments until the get protections for Lick Creek in place. After all, it IS a tributary of Falls Lake, a major source of drinking water. Find out more and write your letter to the council here!
We’re expanding Swim Guide year round at certain sites throughout the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico, so we are searching for volunteers to do monthly water sampling. See what water sampling is all about in this short, instructional video. We’ve also got Trash Trouts (litter-catching devices) on waterways in Washington, New Bern and Raleigh and need volunteers to audit what kind of trash going into our waterways – part of a statewide microplastics study. Email Pamlico-Tar Riverkeeper Jill Howell to volunteer for Swim Guide or the Washington Trash Trout. Email Neuse Riverkeeper Samantha Krop to volunteer for the New Bern or Raleigh Trash Trouts!
Every week we send out eNews with updates about the issues facing your waterways, alerts for when action needs to be taken, opportunities to volunteer with us (and our partners), upcoming events and more.
