On Tuesday March 22, Emma Boyle, the Waccamaw Riverkeeper addressed the Club on the mission and current activities of the group. The mission of Winyah Rivers Foundation is to protect, preserve, monitor and revitalize the health of the lands and waters of the greater Winyah Bay watershed.
In 2002, Winyah Rivers Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization received a license from WATERKEEPER® ALLIANCE for the Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER® Program. The Waccamaw Riverkeeper is a full…-time, paid advocate for the Waccamaw River watershed and implements education and advocacy programs focused on this 1,640 square mile watershed in North and South Carolina. Through volunteers, the Riverkeeper observes water conditions throughout the watershed, and through online reporting, informs DEHEC, NOAA and other governmental and scientific agencies of its findings.
A very interesting topic!
