Three million people and thousands of species depend on clean water from the Cumberland River.
We Make Sure They Get It
The Cumberland River Basin, one of the most biodiverse regions in the country, encompasses cities, farms, schools, factories, and neighborhoods. We work on the root causes of water pollution, both urban and rural.
Clean and abundant water
Our mission is to enhance the health and enjoyment of the Cumberland River and its tributaries through action, education, and collaboration.
