The River-Friendly Community Partner program is designed to meet the unique needs of organizations that do not fit into the traditional River-Friendly facility model of a large campus and asphalt parking lot. Such organizations may include small businesses with little to no land footprint, those who share a building, religious organizations, or libraries.
Through certification, Community Partners can create a healthy, natural setting that boosts visitor morale and well-being, while protecting and enhancing the local environment. Some benefits of this program include healthier landscaping, reduction of employees/ guests exposure to chemicals, a potential decrease in maintenance costs, and stronger connection with the community. We publicly recognize Community Partners that are participating and hold a certification ceremony when the process is completed.
