CAMPAIGN: Protecting the Carolinas' Waterways

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

As one of Duke Energy’s Water Resources Fund recipients, the Greenville YMCA is working to improve access to the Reedy River with outdoor classrooms and science stations. Together, we’re creating better recreational and educational facilities for local families.

Counties Impacted:

  • Greenville County

​Thanks to the Duke Energy Water Resources Fund, YMCA of Greenville’s new riverside outdoor classroom and educational programs allow our community to engage with the Reedy River, furthering their understanding of the impact urbanization makes on it and what their roles can be to protect it.
