I have been a member and worked with FLOW for many years. During this time they have made a real difference in improving the lower Olentangy River. Actions range from clean-ups to being active in development regulations. Their frequent meetings, newsletters and community events do a great job a keeping residents engaged and aware.

In conjunction with another volunteer organization, I have planted trees alongside FLOW volunteers on more than one occasion and have been very impressed with the dedication and knowledge of the members of FLOW’s grassroots organization. FLOW members and volunteers truly care about the environment. They are making a difference in the ecosystem along the Lower Olentangy Watershed not only by raising awareness and educating people, but also by organizing and participating in hands-on projects that help restore and preserve the quality and sustainability of the area. Thank you, FLOW, for all you do.

I went to a rain barrel workshop put on by FLOW and learned so much about the effects of rainwater runoff and the ability to recapture that to reduce my own utility costs and to protect the Olentangy. Their volunteer events really contribute to the health of this important and beautiful river. I've also seen them work very effectively with local governments to assist in keeping the focus on this resource.
