Mark your calendar for Sunday, Dec. 2 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. for Eno River Association’s Holiday Hullabaloo – our annual meeting, calendar celebration, and end-of-year party. We’ll be at the Blue Note Grill to see friends old and new and unveil our 2019 Eno calendar. John Bachmann who sang his Eno River Song last year has created an outstanding video tribute to the river to share.  Keith Nealson and Dave Cook will perform some original Eno songs.  We will hold a brief annual meeting including a short show on the accomplishments of the Association this year. Plus, best of all, renowned musician John Dee Holeman will be performing for all who attend! Join us for this fun, free event. No RSVP necessary, but if you’re on Facebook, let us know if you’ll be there and invite your friends, too!

New Year’s Day Hike

Festival for the Eno – Thanks!

With the help of over 400 committed volunteers to paint faces, pour drinks, tighten ropes, mold clay, model t-shirts, sort compost, manage stages, sell tickets, and so much more, the 2018 Festival for the Eno is now in the books!
Thousands of attendees enjoyed Festival attractions at West Point on the Eno Durham City Park on two beautiful days last week. Early storms on Saturday cleared by early afternoon to blue skies and cool temperatures on one of the most pleasant days in Festival history!

Net proceeds from the Festival for the Eno help protect more lands along the Eno River. Thanks for all you did to support our largest annual event!

Skating into the New Year

The recent cold weather brought a dusting of snow to the Eno, along with hikers, sledders, runners and the occasional skater; taking advantage of a unique opportunity to explore the river.

We’ve Got Exciting News!

Help us raise $123,000 by December 31

Eno River

We’ve got exciting news to share! We’re acquiring 23 more acres of land and placing an additional 19 acres under a permanent conservation easement along the East Fork of the Eno River in northern Orange County in December. All 42 acres adjoin our Confluence Natural Area, expanding our protected lands in this one location to over 220 acres and nearly 5 miles of riverfront.

Now, we need to recharge our coffers so we can spring into action when the next great property becomes available. We also need to implement our expanded stewardship goals for The Confluence Natural Area now that we’ve enlarged its boundaries. You can help us raise the money we need by year’s end. We need a 1-2-3 punch: $70,000 for operations, $50,000 for our land protection efforts, and $3,000 for stewardship, for a total of $123,000 by December 31. Your gift today will help us reach the goal!
