A message from CRS Executive Director Beth Stewart:
We are so deeply grateful for the generous support we have received this past year. This report outlines what the Cahaba River Society has been able to achieve with the community’s investment and with many partners.
Our Board and staff hope you will see that our energy and commitment to our mission ~ to restore and protect the Cahaba River watershed and its rich diversity of life ~meet the level of your commitment and love for the Cahaba and your concern for the future of our drinking water and communities.
Here at CRS, we have the long-term experience and we’ve built the skills to know what it takes to save the Cahaba – and we continue to need your support to make it happen.
It takes education to build knowledge and commitment to act. It takes collaboration with many partners to achieve real and lasting stewardship so vital to the Cahaba. Most importantly, it takes integrity to build the trust and relationships that yield collaboration. These are the values at the foundation of our work. Your Cahaba River Society has had a very productive year. Policies and partnerships for clean, healthy waters are stronger in Alabama as a result.
CRS is stronger, too, with more members, new events bringing us together and to the River, and growing relationships with people who have the river’s future in their hands.
Our strategies are working, and we will make even more progress in 2012. Your support helps us be effective at the level the River’s challenges require. Your faith and confidence in us will lift us to meet those challenges.
CRS is proud to report that River Network, Inc. honored Beth as a 2011 National River Hero at River Rally on June 6. (To read the full report, please visit our website.)
We are excited to share with you our achivements over the past year, as they’ve been possible only with the support of friends like you - thank you. In this time of giving, we hope that you will choose to keep a beautiful, life-filled Cahaba and clean, afordable drinking water a priority.
Please consider a special year-end gift, and help to move us closer toward our shared vision of a healthy Cahaba. Your gift for the Cahaba is a gift of clean water to every one you love.
