Do your part!
- Be sure to take your trash with you, and better yet pick up any that you see
- Avoid using fertilizers if you live in the 73 mile springshed. If you must use them, follow these guidelines to be smart about it
- Support efforts to remove septic tanks
- Conserve water at home! Use low flow appliances, use rain sensors on your irrigation systems, and turn off the water when you brush your teeth. (See if you qualify for a rebate for replacing your toilet with a low flow one)
Cleaning all 5.7 miles of the river is no small feat and it will have a big price tag. We hope to seek fundings from the State Legislature, however we have to show that we are dedicated and have the ability to see this project through to the end. All funds raised will help demonstrate our community’s commitment. Each dollar will help us advance our mission to restore the Rainbow River.

Art Jones is an asset to our county. He’s a dreamer, a thinker and a doer. He puts his money where his mouth is. And in a world full of politicians and talking heads, a man of action like Art Jones deserves to be honored.
