is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific and education purposes. Regular meetings are held to plan community events, discuss relevant environmental issues for this region, and build collaboration strategies with local and statewide partners.


Support and conduct non-partisan research on environmental issues including water quality in the Albemarle Sound.


Provide informational activities to increase public awareness of environmental issues and concerns in the community.
