about south river federation

While it will take millions of dollars in sand and gravel to restore the river, none of our restoration projects could happen without individuals donating operational funds so that staff can monitor our River, negotiate with landholders and stakeholders, write grants, submit permits, and engage volunteers. We are proud that every $1 contributed leverages $20 in river restoration. Learn more about the Guardian Society, our leadership giving circle here.

We are very grateful to all our partners who are helping us restore the river "in one generation to where it was two generations ago." Without their financial generosity and technical assistance, we wouldn't be able to install the conservation projects that are helping make the South River more fishable and swimmable.
