One of the newest Riverkeepers in America's oldest city! Building on decades of community effort, Matanzas Riverkeeper fights to protect and defend the remarkable Matanzas River Watershed. We're a proud member of the Waterkeeper Alliance.
We want to acknowledge the generosity of two local organizations who have recently stepped forward to help us protect the Matanzas River.
Matanzas Riverkeeper received a generous donation from the All American Air Charitable Foundation in St. Augustine. I met with their board, and they support our mission and love the Matanzas River. They want to help MRK maintain our website. The AAA Foundation supports many good causes in our community, and we are are grateful they have chosen to add our names to the groups they support.
Wingard Creative in Jacksonville recently awarded Matanzas Riverkeeper a grant to provide in-kind creative services through The Wishing Well, a pro-bono program that was launched in 2013. This is a great opportunity to work with a really talented group who support our work, and will help us better reach our community through messaging and outreach.
Thanks to both AAA Foundation and Wingard Creative for their belief in our work.
Someone asked me 'Does that includes surfers?' Yeah, you right.
We’re showing President Barack Obama & the U.S. Department of the Interior that people all over are opposed to the recent decision to open up the Atlantic to oil exploration, and that we’ll be there to battle seismic airgun permitting every step of the way.
