Clean Air for Kids to Breathe

Clean Air Carolina’s Medical Advocates for Healthy Air (MAHA) program engages medical professionals in clean air campaigns to raise awareness about the link between clean air and health. MAHA trains medical residents on the the link between air quality and health and its particular significance for children’s developing lungs.

Keeping Trash Out of Our Water

With the help of volunteers including teams from Wells Fargo and Disney, Catawba RiverKeeper Foundation completed a cleanup of over 1300 lbs of trash in the Charlotte, NC area. The cleanup prevented trash from flowing into water sources, including three creeks and the Catawba River. Trash can harm fish and wildlife and contaminate our drinking water.

Homes for Endangered Birds

The Brown-headed Nuthatch is one of many climate-threatened species found in North Carolina and a priority species for Audubon North Carolina. In 2014, ANC built and posted over 5000 nest boxes for the bird through statewide conservation effort.

A Trail from Mountains to Sea
