Our Work

Our organization works to answer the simple questions “is it safe to swim?”, “are the fish safe to eat?”, and “what can I do to make the Coosa healthier for my community?” as a means to ensure the public is aware of  issues that impact recreation, public health, and property value.

OUR MISSION

Coosa Riverkeeper’s mission is to protect, restore and promote the Coosa River and its tributaries. We are a citizen-based nonprofit organization working to improve water quality, protect valuable habitat, and promote recreation and public health along the Coosa River in Alabama. We patrol the waterways, educate the public, and advocate on behalf of the river. Coosa Riverkeeper is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
