We are so excited to launch the new year as Arundel Rivers Federation! We hope you like our new logo, which retains the fish from South River Federation but incorporates our new name as we expand to cover the waterways of southern Anne Arundel County (see map).
West Rhode Riverkeeper Inc. and South River Federation have been closely partnered for many years. As John Flood, the Founder of South River Federation explained, “It’s like one of your children getting married after a very long engagement—everyone is so pleased.” There will be no staff changes as part of the consolidation. Jeff Holland remains the West/Rhode Riverkeeper and Jesse Iliff remains the South Riverkeeper. Both will continue to monitor the water quality, help enforce existing environmental laws and advocate for better protection for our local waterways.
We understand that people want to give the river they live by and boat on. Therefore, when supporting the new Arundel Rivers Federation, you can also choose to direct your donation to a dedicated fund for the South River or a dedicated fund for the West/Rhode Rivers.
