Friends of the Rappahannock FOR Charity Profile
Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) was formed in 1985 as a non-profit, grassroots conservation organization.
We are citizens from all walks of life, whose common goal is to maintain the water quality and scenic beauty of the Rappahannock River and its tributaries. We work with a wide variety of stakeholders, from local governments to elementary students, to educate about the river and to advocate for actions and policies that will protect and restore the values that make the Rappahannock River so special.
We promote environmentally responsible planning through active participation in the civic process, Our professional staff provide technical support to local governments, developers, and teachers in areas of special expertise, including Low Impact Development codes and ordinances, Watershed Planning, Water Quality Monitoring, Invasive Species Control, and Streambank Restoration.
