Your Gift Will Match $40K from GSK!
The Eno River Association just became the first environmental nonprofit in North Carolina to receive the prestigious GSK IMPACT Award for helping people in our community live healthier lives. Your gift today will help us match our $40,000 IMPACT award. All funds will be used to pursue the expansion of Eno River State Park, support our environmental education initiatives, and advance other conservation priorities along the Eno.
By getting more kids outdoors, hands on, and feet wet, we’re laying the foundation for a healthy active lifestyle, nurturing a love of nature, and mentoring the next generation of environmental conservationists.
More Critical Land and Water Protected
Over four acres was added to Eno River State Park in Durham County at the end of December, thanks to a land purchase completed by the Eno River Association last June. The Association also just protected two more properties totaling 101 acres in Orange County. Approximately half this land adjoins Eno River State Park and protects Buckquarter Creek, a major tributary of the river. The other half is located along the West Fork of Eno in Cedar Grove upstream of Hillsborough’s water supply. These projects would not have been possible without the generous support of our donors, the landowners, Orange County’s Lands Legacy Program, the Town of Hillsborough, the City of Raleigh, the US Endowment for Forestry and Communities, and the Conservation Trust for North Carolina.
