Apalachicola Bay and Riverkeeper, Inc.
The mission of the Apalachicola Riverkeeper is to provide stewardship and advocacy for the protection of the Aplalachicola River and Bay, its tributaries and watersheds, in order to improve and maintain its environmental integrity, and to preserve the natural scenic, recreational and commercial fishing character of these waterways.
Apalachicola Riverkeeper is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose members are dedicated to the restoration and protection of the Apalachicola River and Bay. Our sole mission is to preserve this spectacular natural resource for future generations.
The Apalachicola River basin is renowned as one of the most ecologically diverse natural areas in the Southeastern United States and as the River’s watchdog, Apalachicola Riverkeeper is working to save the River and Bay with every tool at our disposal – advocacy, science, on-the-water patrols, public education and, when necessary, legal action.
We are committed to saving this resource now, because we know that without protection, this beautiful natural area could disappear. Our strength as a grassroots advocacy organization committed to protecting the River and Bay comes from the support of our 1400 members living throughout the 19,800 square mile Apalachicola River basin and around the country. Along with our members, Apalachicola Riverkeeper is the River’s “voice”. Our action is critical to focus public and political attention on the importance of saving this one-of-a-kind resource.
Some items big & small that Apalachicola Riverkeeper is currently seeking to support our on-going advocacy, collaborative research, outreach & education efforts:
- SUV or Minivan (new or good condition, low to moderate mileage) to haul ARK motorboat and kayak trailer/gear. Our 20-year old Suburban has shared many adventures with us. It's time to replace it.
- Laminating machine
- Quality, standard size computer projector
- Flat-screen, wall-mountable monitor
