Keeping Watch Over Our Waters Since 2010

Our organization works to answer the simple questions like “is it safe to swim?”, “are the fish safe to eat?”, and “what can I do to make the Coosa healthier for my community?” to ensure the public is aware of issues that impact the river, recreation, public health, and property value.

Many folks have memories of learning how to fish from a family member or a camp. These days kids and families might not know where to start when it comes to learning how to cast, catch, and cook fish from the river. During our clinics, we will work with kids in an experiential learning style with casting lessons, discussion on responsible recreation on the river, and explain how to reduce exposure to potentially harmful contaminants through live cooking demonstrations.
