FOR staff was astonished by the number of volunteers who showed up on October 20 to scour the banks of the Rappahannock and surrounding streams
2012 was a truly incredible year for the Rappahannock Restore Corps. Volunteers rallied to plant trees, restore streambanks, pick up trash, build
Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) was formed in 1985 as a non-profit, grassroots conservation organization.
We are citizens from all walks of life, whose common goal is to maintain the water quality, living resources, and scenic beauty of the Rappahannock River and its tributaries. We work with a wide variety of stakeholders, from local governments to elementary students, to educate about the river and to advocate for actions and policies that will protect and restore the values that make the Rappahannock River so special.
We are led by a volunteer Executive Committee and a professional staff that includes environmental scientists, educators, and a working waterman.
