How You Can Help

Interested in supporting DRBA?

Here's how!

Together we can be environmental agents of change for our region and improve and enhance the communities in both Virginia and North Carolina in the Dan River basin.

As we enter our third decade as protector of the Dan River basin, we find our challenges are different than those we faced in the past. Since DRBA began in 2002, we’ve seen incredible improvements in the health of our regional rivers and streams. The issues may seem less obvious and appear less urgent to address, but the truth is, our challenges are even greater.

We owe it to future generations of students, families, and communities to not just protect but also improve the natural and cultural resources of the Dan River basin.
