Lumber Riverkeeper

Founded in 2018, the Lumber Riverkeeper serves as a fundamental protector of the Lumber River watershed, engaging local residents and communities to identify pollution sources, enforce environmental laws, advocate for stronger environmental laws and policies, and protect this important asset. A total of 1,750 square miles in North and South Carolina, its headwaters, known as Drowning Creek, begin in the Sandhills ecoregion of North Carolina. The main stem of the Lumber River lies in the Coastal Plain ecoregion, flowing over 125 miles to join the Little Pee Dee River in South Carolina. All 115 miles of the Lumber River in North Carolina are designated a state Natural and Scenic River. Of these, 81 miles are also designated as a National Wild and Scenic River. The Lumber Riverkeeper is key to Winyah Rivers Alliance’s endeavours to monitor and protect the quality of the greater Winyah Bay watershed (Lower Pee Dee Basin in North and South Carolina).
