VNB Community Counts: Rivanna Conservation Society

June 25, 2010

Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature the Rivanna Conservation Society.

Robbi Savage joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about the RCS, which is celebrating its 20-year anniversary in 2010.

The RCS was created by four friends in Fluvanna County who loved the Rivanna River and wanted it to be cared for and protected. As the "Voice of the Rivanna," RCS works to safeguard the ecological, recreational, historical, cultural and scenic resources of the Rivanna River and its tributaries.

To achieve its mission, RCS sponsors events and activities like the annual River Clean Up and facilitates the community's involvement in World Water Monitoring Day, among many other things. In fact, Virginia leads the nation in World Water Monitoring Day participation, thanks in large part to the efforts of RCS and the schools throughout the Rivanna watershed.

The Rivanna Conservation Society is always looking for volunteers and new members. To become a part of RCS, interested parties can visit RivannaRiver.org or call 434-97-RIVER.
