The Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) was founded in 2002 with the mission to protect and promote the natural and cultural resources of the Dan River Basin through education, recreation and stewardship. The Dan River Basin covers 3,300 square miles and reaches 16 counties in North Carolina and Virginia. DRBA protects the quality of our region’s drinking water, provides educational opportunities for thousands of students, and builds trails and river accesses so people can get outdoors and get healthy. If you want to help protect our natural and cultural resources, please become a member, volunteer, donate or join us every first for a free outing. Learn more at danriver.org.
