The mission of the Freshwater Society is to promote the conservation, protection and restoration of all freshwater resources.
Since 1968 – two years before the first Earth Day – the Freshwater Society has been a leading public nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving, restoring, and protecting freshwater resources and their surrounding watersheds. To achieve this goal, our organization:
- Recognizes the vital role of freshwater to all living things and the impending crisis in the quantity and quality of accessible freshwater.
- Dedicates its experience and resources to activities that lead to the understanding, protection, enhancement, and restoration of freshwater resources.
- Invites the participation and support of individuals, associations, business and industry, institutions, educators, and government in these activities.
The Freshwater Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. View our Internal Revenue Service 990 form.
