POSTPONED: AIRWAVE: Riverkeeper Benefit

Thank you for your support of AirWave. Facing uncertainly and concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone AirWave which was scheduled for March 21. We will monitor the pandemic’s local developments and try to find a date in the late summer to have this great even. Public health is a major focus of Coosa Riverkeeper, Cahaba Riverkeeper, and Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s efforts for cleaner water, and we must prioritize public health when considering large gatherings like AirWave. COVID-19 is clearly a public health issue that we take seriously. Rest assure, we will not neglect our work to protect public health from negative impacts of pollution of our waterways.

We want 100 kids to put down their screens and pick up fishing rodsHelp us reach out $10,000 goal for Giving Tuesday!

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.
