On January 1, an anonymous donor provided generous financial support for this year’s goal of cleaning and assessing 80 miles of river valleys in the Rappahannock, Rapidan, Hughes, Hazel, Conway, and Rose watersheds of Central Virginia. This support already brings the program 10% of the way towards its goal of $150,000 in riverside landowner fees and watershed philanthropy.
On Sunday, September 14th at the American Canoe Association Paddling Summit, the StreamSweepers program was presented the “Sanctioned Event of the Year” award. Beth Seale, On-Water-Manager for StreamSweepers traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan to accept this national award on behalf of StreamSweepers and the Center for Natural Capital.
The Center for Natural Capital has launched this new website specifically for the StreamSweepers program. We will be adding new content in the weeks ahead. Thanks for stopping by.
