Rappahannock River Friendly Yard Demonstration Project Moves Forward

Yesterday, an exploratory committee composed of for-profit businesses, non-profit organizations, and local governments enthusiastically agreed to move forward with a 24 month project to explore the efficiency of “river friendly” yards to help reduce pollution to the Chesapeake Bay. In the coming weeks, a Steering Committee composed of Gentle Gardener Green Design, The National Wildlife Federation, George Washington University, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Bio Green USA, Friends of the Rappahannock, City of Fredericksburg, Conserv, and the Rappahannock River Basin Commission will convene to develop a Scope of Work, Budget, and identify additional partners needed for a robust effort.

The River Friendly Yard is a demonstration project of the Trust for a Clean Water Economy.
