Apalachicola Bay and Riverkeeper, Inc.

Apalachicola Rierkeeper is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection, restoration, and stewardship of the Apalachicola River and Apalachicola Bay.  As part of the Waterkeeper Alliance and with the support of our 1400+ members, Apalachicola Riverkeeper is a voice of the River.  We focus public and political attention on the importance of saving this truly unique resource.  We are a 501(C)3 organization, which means that your donations to Apalachicola Riverkeeper are fully tax deductible.

Apalachicola Riverkeeper is often the only line of defense against environmental degradation of the River and Bay.  We advocate for the River at the grassroots level, with state legislators and regulators, and in the halls of Congress.  We, along with our members, are committed to protecting and restoring the Apalachicola River and believe that because the Apalachicola River ecosystem belongs to all of us, we have a shared responsibility to preserve it for future generations.

Efforts include:

  • A multi-year slough restoration project to benefit the river floodplain and East Bay
  • Water quality monitoring and microplastics sampling
  • The annual RiverTrek public outreach and fundraising campaign
  • Monthly eco-educational hiking and kayak outings throughout the Basin
  • Area cleanup efforts that remove tons of trash and debris
  • Legally challenging the Army Corps of Engineers' Environmental Impact Study (EIS)
  • Fighting oil and gas drilling activities in the Apalachicola River Basin

Since 1988, Apalachicola Riverkeeper has remained unwavering in its mission.  By working together, we can protect and restore what we love.
