The Haw River Assembly: The Haw River Assembly is a non-profit citizens' group founded in 1982 to restore and protect the Haw River and Jordan Lake. The Haw River is a valuable natural resource, the headwaters of the Cape Fear River Basin. The Haw River provides drinking water to many communities, critical wildlife habitats, endangered species, and recreational and scenic areas.
The Haw River Learning Celebration is a fall field trip to the Haw River for fourth graders. Since we began the program in 1990, over 48,000 students have participated. Schools attend one of our three locations in Chatham, Alamance and Rockingham counties and spend a day doing activities along the river, enjoying a picnic lunch and concert together, and a special puppet show.
Your donation helps make this event possible. Our goal this year is to raise $5,000 to help defray the cost of supplies, staff time, food, U-haul costs, and everything else it takes to create these three weeks of magic on the river!
