As a CVI Partner, your donation ensures the continuation of our work for healthy streams and water resources in creating and sustaining economically viable communities, and to involve students in an environment-based education. And, you can take pride in supporting projects that enhance the lives of our neighbors in rural communities. Together, we will make a difference!
