Support 40 Years of Defending Our River

The Haw River Assembly has been defending our watershed since 1982 and this year marks our 40th anniversary!

It is still the Haw River Assembly’s mission to restore and protect the Haw River and Jordan Lake, and to build and support a watershed community that shares this vision by promoting environmental education, conservation and pollution prevention. Help us in speaking as a voice for the river in the public arena; and to put into peoples’ hands the tools and the knowledge they need to be effective guardians of the river.

Donate to Help Us Organize Against the Mountain Valley Pipeline:

The Mountain Valley Pipeline project is a natural gas pipeline system that spans approximately 303 miles from northwestern West Virginia to southern Virginia. This project has been amended to include an additional 70 miles of pipeline from southern Virginia into central North Carolina including new delivery points in Rockingham and Alamance Counties, North Carolina.  See more information HERE.

The Swim Guide program allows us to monitor for E.Coli bacteria at several public swimming accesses in the Haw River basin. Your donation will allow us to reimburse mileage and lab equipment.

Learning Celebration Crowdfunder:

The Haw River Learning Celebration is a field trip to the Haw River for fourth graders each fall.  Since we began the program in 1990, over 48,000 students have participated.  Schools attend one of our three locations in Chatham, Alamance and Rockingham counties and spend a day doing activities along the river, enjoying a picnic lunch and concert together, and a special puppet show.

Your donation allows us to keep the costs of the program as low as possible. It helps make it feasible for us to charge only $3 per child, and we never turn down a child for inability to pay.  You can donate online using the Paypal button below (Paypal Account not required), or can you mail a check payable to HRA with memo line Learning Celebration to PO Box 187 Bynum, NC 27228. Thank you!


Mail in your donation

Haw River Assembly, P.O. Box 187, Bynum NC 27228. Please write relevant donation information (i.e. membership, memorial donation, a donation in honor of an individual or project you’d like your donation to benefit) on the check memo line.

Additional Trash Trout T-Shirts

NC Riverkeepers across the state received a grant with the help of Waterkeepers Carolina, to collaborate with Asheville GreenWorks and their Trash Trout design to help mitigate stormwater pollution in our waterways. The Haw River Assembly has begun installing its first Trash Trout in Third Fork Creek, Durham with hopes that this model will encourage other municipalities to follow suit.
