St Johns Riverkeeper – Jacksonville, FL

Posted on 17th December 2014 by admin in Rivers of the world

The St. Johns Riverkeeper mission is to work on behalf of the community for clean and healthy waters in the St. Johns River, its tributaries and its wetlands, through citizen-based advocacy.

We are a privately-funded, independent and trusted voice for the St. Johns River and the public to whom it belongs.

St. Johns Riverkeeper accomplishes its mission by:

  • Patrolling the river on a regular basis in our St. Johns Riverkeeper boat.
  • Investigating pollution problems and demanding accountability.
  • Ensuring that our environmental laws and regulations are implemented and enforced.
  • Advocating for sensible solutions and necessary policy changes to better protect the St. Johns.
  • Educating the public about the St. Johns River and the issues impacting its health.
  • Developing high quality educational resources and programs.
  • Providing frequent opportunities for students and the general public to experience the river through boat trips and field trips.
  • Informing, involving, and engaging our members and the community in the efforts to protect and restore the river’s health.
  • Participating in the public policy decision-making process to represent the interests of the river, our members, and the public.
  • Working with citizens to effectively resolve problems impacting the river in their neighborhoods and communities.
