We will journey down the 248-mile-long Neuse River, exploring what makes it so special and why it is under constant threat. We will explore the many sources of pollution that are affecting our river and what your upper Neuse riverkeeper is doing to keep our river fishable, swimmable and drinkable.

About our speaker

Matthew began his involvement with the Neuse Riverkeeper Foundation, now Sound Rivers, as an intern working on the Muddy Water Watch program, aimed at reducing sedimentation pollution.
