During the program, you can visit your favorite "watering holes" in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa and purchase “paper fish” for $1, $5 or $10, or a "Save the Black Warrior" T-shirt, helping raise awareness and funding for river protection.
To see the list of participating establishments and learn other ways to help, visit www.savetheblackwarrior.com (participating locations are also listed below). You may also go to the website and enter an online contest to win an Arc'teryx jacket donated by Mountain High Outfitters, who is sponsoring "Save the Black Warrior" along with H2 Real Estate.
SweetWater also organizes “Save the Waterways” collaborations with other Waterkeeper Alliance organizations in the Southeast, including French Broad Riverkeeper, Mobile Baykeeper, Neuse Riverkeeper, Charleston Waterkeeper, Apalachicola Riverkeeper, St. Johns Riverkeeper and Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper.
Last year, SweetWater launched Waterkeeper Hefeweizen, an unfiltered ale created specifically to bring awareness to the Waterkeeper organizations, their mission, and their “Save the Waterways” campaigns. The brew will hit draft taps across the Southeast later this month.
2012 is a particularly special year for the Black Warrior Riverkeeper, as it is the nonprofit’s 10th Anniversary! "Give of your liver to save the river!"*
