The Red River Watershed Association is a community-based organization made up of Kentucky and Tennessee residents. We are all stakeholders in the watershed - farmers/landowners, homeowners, business people, agency representatives, local government representatives, concerned parents, environmentalists, and others - who are dedicated to enhancing and protecting the quality and quantity of water in the creeks and streams that flow into the Red River. We accomplish this mission through education, by promoting cooperation with communities, business, and agencies, and encouraging responsible stewardship.

Initiated by the Cumberland River Compact in 2000, the RRWA held its first solo meeting in 2001 and was deemed a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in September 2002.  The RRWA has a part-time Executive Director with 10 years of combined experience in international business and non-profit management and as an environmental analyst, researcher and educator.  Our board members, members, volunteer leadership, and supporters are local city and county staff and officials, government agency staff, concerned citizens, farmers, business leaders, scientists, engineers, and community leaders. Our approach involves seeking to understand all perspectives and working collaboratively with a wide range of interests to yield long lasting and practical results. Though we are not confrontational in style, we actively confront problems.

The RRWA holds public meetings and sponsors special events, including training workshops and water quality education programs, canoe trips, stream clean-ups, and stream bank restoration and habitat improvement projects. We are forging positive relationships with key environmental agencies and community groups and have a strong partnership with Austin Peay State University’s Center for Field Biology.

As a volunteer-based organization, there are many ways to get involved, either by contributing money or time organizing and participating in our programs and events.
