We love supporting the Haw River Assembly who protects the Haw River Watershed. Thanks to support from Patagonia, 20% of ALL Patagonia sales at the shop from Friday November 16th through Sunday November 18th will go directly to supporting the Haw River Assembly.
The Haw River Watershed includes nine hundred and twenty miles of streams feeding into the Haw along the 110 miles of the river, the 14,000 acres of Jordan Lake, and the plants, animals, and people who depend on the river.
The Haw River Assembly started back in 1982 and we’ve been going strong ever since! We have over a thousand members and volunteers that live in the 8 counties that are part of our watershed – Guilford, Rockingham, Caswell, Alamance, Orange, Chatham, Durham and Wake (and a tiny bit of Forsyth where the headwater springs start). We are a leading advocacy voice for clean water and stronger protections for the Haw River and Jordan Lake and the tributaries that feed them. Volunteers help us put on an annual river program for 4th graders, take part in our stream monitoring project, clean up trash from our streams and much more. Our Haw Riverkeeper leads the fight against industrial contaminants, sediment and nutrient pollution in our waters, and the new threat to Alamance and Rockingham counties by the proposed MVP Southgate pipeline. We won’t back down in our work for clean water, and we hope you will join us! Our work is made possible by the support of our volunteers and membership donations. Join us in protecting this beautiful and life supporting resource.
