Bring New meaning to your life.

You don’t have to be a water enthusiast or environmentalist to appreciate the importance of the New River to our health as a community.  The river is connected to our lives and our lives are connected to the river.  We are all in this together.

We bring people together to share in the challenges, the opportunities and in the possibilities of the New, and we hope you’ll join us.

With vital resources like clean water and a healthy watershed being threatened by chemicals in our water and air, runoff from parking lots, and trash and tires deposited in our creeks, streams and river, now is the time to add your voice to the thousands of people dedicated to leaving our children a living legacy in a clean and healthy New River.

From its humble beginnings as a small spring in Blowing Rock, North Carolina to the valleys and cliffs of Virginia to the grandeur that is the New River Gorge in Fayetteville, West Virginia, the staff, Board and members of the New River Conservancy are committed to a cleaner, healthier watershed.

Your tax-deductible yearly membership will allow us to clean more of the New River, conserve more land, and protect more hellbenders.

Monthly Giving

While every gift helps our cause, monthly members are the foundation of our work fighting for the health of the New River Watershed.  We are on the frontlines day-in, day-out, working with communities to protect the waters, woodlands and wildlife, ensure clean water, and work with our legislatures to do the right thing for our watershed and planet. Because this work can take weeks, months, and even years, a monthly membership is the most effective way to support all of our work through the long haul. Please consider stepping up your commitment by becoming a monthly member today.
