First Riverkeeper for St. Marys River has been named!

February 15, 2016

First Riverkeeper for St. Marys River has been named! Congrats to Rick Frey, a dedicated retired businessman and science teacher, for being “the eyes, ears, and voice for this vital watershed”! (Quote from Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Waterkeeper Alliance President)

Rick joined actively in environmental groups and trained to become a certified naturalist in Georgia and Florida, where he worked as a kayak guide and volunteered at wildlife refuges. He was shocked in 2010 to learn the St. Marys River had no Riverkeeper when he settled in the area, yet the river was endowed with scenic wilderness to preserve.

We thank Rick for taking the responsibility to fight for a healthier river in the region and encourage you, who may be the next Rick, to love and protect our waters more for the benefits of future Georgian generations!
