about south river federation

The South River Federation is proud to announce receipt of a Green Grant from BGE/Exelon for $3,000 to continue our work in the Church Creek watershed - one of the most impaired creeks in the South River.

SRF is working with the READY (Restoring the Environment and Developing Youth) Program this summer providing hands-on environmental job training during an 8-week program. The READY Program provides hands-on environmental job training for minority youth (18-24). Many of the youth in this program are from the Church Creek watershed. 

This project is a critical piece of our Church Creek Initiative to improve water quality. The ultimate goal and benefit of this initiative is clean water - a goal that will be backed up by intensive tidal and non-tidal water quality monitoring efforts. While the primary beneficiaries will be the READY participants receiving hands on environmental job training partially funded by this grant, the 66,000 residents of the South River Watershed will ultimately benefit from improved water quality. 

We are very proud to partner with BGE in this very worthy program.
