ABOUT PTRF

About PTRF

The Pamlico-Tar River Foundation was founded in 1981. It is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to protecting, preserving and promoting the environmental quality of the Tar-Pamlico River and its watershed. PTRF is a grassroots organization, supported by nearly 2,500 citizen members -- "River Givers."

The Pamlico-Tar River is the lifeblood of the people and communities who live within its watershed. PTRF continues a 30-year tradition of monitoring and protecting the river through:

  • Education of individuals and groups
  • Advocacy for enforcement of existing laws
  • The development of new legislation and
  • Conducting research that monitors and evaluates the health of the river.

A full time PTRF RIVERKEEPER® monitors and protects the river and serves as a scientific and educational resource to all the people living in the watershed.
