The Waccamaw RIVERKEEPER® Program is a program of the Winyah Rivers Foundation.

Paula Reidhaar - Waccamaw Riverkeeper


The Winyah Rivers Foundation is a grass roots non-profit organization concerned with protecting the watershed of Winyah Bay. The Waccamaw Riverkeeper focuses on the Waccamaw River, but as part of the Winyah Rivers Foundation will conduct work on the other rivers of the Winyah Bay Watershed as well.




We have been invited to participate in Lowcountry Giving Day by the Bunnelle Foundation and Coastal Communtiy Foundation. We have $10,000 of match money available which we can earn through online giving on Tuesday May 5th. We appreciate your assistance in helping us spread the word to really raise some money. Share our Facebook event.


Please think about all the ways you enjoy the rivers and waters of the Winyah Bay watershed and consider donating to help us work to protect it. All donations must be made through KIMBIA at this link on May 5th for Lowcountry Giving Day. Donations will be accepted from 12am-12am on Tuesday May 5th and all donations made on this day will be incentivized with additional dollars so we can do even more work to protect fishable, swimmable, drinkable water."

We still have a handful of rain barrels left. You can still order online at this link and just coordinate pickup by contacting the Waccamaw Riverkeeper at 843-349-4007 or wrk@coastal.edu.
