Adopt A Stream


Ogeechee Riverkeeper is a community coordinator for the Georgia Adopt-A-Stream program.

Citizens can help the riverkeeper assess stream and water quality throughout the basin.

Under the Microscope

Investigation highlight: Ogeechee Riverkeeper is investigating a stream with an odd appearance on McWhorter Drive on Skidaway Island. It has recently exhibited unusual color, clarity, and odor.

We are working with the regulatory authorities to trace the source and determine the cause. We will share updates as they become available.

Landfill update

Screven County Planning and Zoning Committee unanimously denied a recommendation for a new regional landfill that would be just two miles from the Ogeechee River. 

County commissioners will cast their final vote on March 19. All are encouraged to support the citizens of Screven Co. and attend the final push to defeat the landfill. 


Take Action

There are many ways you can help the Ogeechee Riverkeeper protect, preserve and improve the waterways within the basin.
