Potomac Riverkeeper accomplishes many things that larger, similar organizations do not. They also communicate their actions and activities much better, more frequently, across more effective media. Somehow they manage to convey an image that suggests both "swift, energetic, and ever present" and also "mature, efficient, and thorough". Donors have no doubt their contributions are applied well to real problems. They've taken action in the upper watershed that was overlooked by other groups (for decades) and followed through with legal action when the polluter ignored a judge's mandate.

I teach a graduate course in Watershed Science, Education and Leadership at a nearby land grant university. I learned of the Potomac Riverkeeper in researching the advocacy/leadership section of the course, and the next year began communicating with them about my own concerns for the South Branch of the Potomac River. Over the last two years, they have physically investigated each report I submitted about unusual discoveries, and they act. I use them as an example of thoughtful, effective advocacy.

I hope to someday help them raise the funds to provide a "keeper" for each of the Potomac's main tributaries (North Branch, South Branch, Shenandoah, Monocacy. I'm already looking to help them partner to train teachers in delivering "meaningful watershed experiences" here in the South Branch watershed.
