Headwaters formed in 2005, when concerned community members in Letcher County, Kentucky decided to take action on water quality issues.
Since then, Headwaters has embodied its commitment to community and ecology! Staff and volunteers lead environmental education efforts in local schools, arrange stream cleanups, hold workshops, and monitor our streams and drinking water. In the coalfields of central Appalachia, where many decisions about land and community are made in faraway cities, we're hard at work making sure information about our environment is freely understood and available right here at home.
But working for our streams in rural Kentucky isn't easy. To keep doing our work, we need your support!
Your donation will help launch us into the next year by:
- Helping us purchase supplies for our water science lessons with Letcher County high schoolers.
- Increasing our capacity to recruit and train volunteer water samplers.
- Implementing stream restoration projects on the North Fork of the Kentucky River and improve the quality of both our streams and our drinking water.
Please give $10, $20, or $30 to Headwaters today, and support the only nonprofit in East Kentucky focused completely on water quality issues!
