Helping Future Generations Enjoy Healthy Aquatic Ecosystems

The Choctawhatchee Riverkeeper® (CRK) mission is to protect and restore the ecological health of the Choctawhatchee River, its tributaries, and the surrounding terrestrial systems that constitute the watershed. CRK and its members work to accomplish the mission independently and in cooperation with individuals, institutions, organizations, and agencies using a watershed approach to guarantee clean water, healthy aquatic ecosystems, and public access to and enjoyment of the recreational and aesthetic values of the river.
