Becoming a member of ORK allows us to continue the important work of testing water quality, sharing stories from the watershed, fighting legal battles, providing recreational guidance, and coordinating cleanup efforts across our 5,500 square-mile territory.
In addition to the various perks ORK offers our members, adding your name to our membership list is critical to our legislative efforts and grant applications. Having a strong team behind us shows that our constituents support our work.
We won't be able to hold our annual oyster roast this year, but we will be celebrating our 15th year with a fun online event with videos and a fantastic raffle. Our free annual meeting will be held on Friday, November 13, 2020.
Mark you calendars - details coming soon.
October Creature Feature
Spooks and goblins and monsters come out to play in October. We’re highlighting these not-so-scary creatures in our watershed and we want you to choose your favorite one!
We’ll be posting pairs throughout the month. All you have to do is vote for your favorite and we’ll update the bracket as creatures advance to the finals.
Mix up you work-from-home tunes with our playlist featuring music from Georgians and songs about rivers.
We included artists like Larkin Poe, Wormsloew, Eva Cassidy, and the Allman Brothers.
It's free to listen, so crank it up!
