What You Can Do...

...At Home

The Ohio River and rivers and creeks in its watershed are in poor condition, overwhelmed by the impact of 25 million people living on the land that drains into the Ohio. As awareness of the problem grows, one truth is evident: Every resident of our region needs to be part of the solution.

You can help! Start by embracing your environment.  Introduce children to the wonders of the natural world. Consider changing the way you care for your home and your yard. The actions that we take in our daily lives can make a difference in the health of this national treasure.
