With continued population growth in North Carolina, the beauty of the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico watersheds are under tremendous strain as use is at an all-time high. Which means we need environmentalists and nature lovers like you who will help us advocate for the protection of our precious water sources.

Sound Rivers serves as the primary protector of these rivers and millions of people in our state rely on this organization to keep watch over a watershed that covers 12,000 square miles and nearly one-quarter of our state. Water from these sources flows through homes and businesses every day, and we need support from citizens like you to monitor and protect the health of our rivers.
