To protect the waters, woodlands, and wildlife

The staff, board of directors, and volunteers of the New River Conservancy are dedicated to protecting the waters, woodlands, and wildlife of the New River Watershed. 

The New River winds its way through three states and countless communities who have depended on its bounty for generations. We are here to protect it and to ensure that the waters that feed it are clean; that the land supports vibrant plants and animals; and that the communities that rely on it are passionate and empowered advocates for a healthy New River.
