    Donate to the River Center

    WRWA’s new headquarters, the old Head Garage on Old County Road is finally under construction.  It is a fabulous site for connecting WRWA’s mission to the River and to projects we have developed to improve water quality.  Located in the “heart” of our watershed, the River Center will be a welcoming and engaging destination where the entire community and visitors can learn firsthand about our natural resources.

    We are thrilled to announce that five board members have collectively committed to $100,000 as a 1:1 match opportunity.  As a challenge to you and other members of the WRWA community, until July 1, 2019, your contribution to the River Center project will be matched dollar for dollar!

    Please consider making a on-time gift toward our goal.  We welcome gifts at all levels.
