Friends of the Shenandoah River
The Friends of the Shenandoah River is a volunteer, non-profit, scientific organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of the Shenandoah River and its tributaries.
Launched in 1989, the FOSR grass-roots water quality monitoring and testing program was the first of its kind in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Today, in its 23rd year of continuous operation, the program deploys 72 FOSR volunteers who wade in, literally, with bi-monthly water samplings along 150 miles of the Shenandoah and its tributaries, from Port Republic, VA to Harpers Ferry, WV. The samples are processed through a full-time FOSR laboratory at Shenandoah University, resulting in a huge and invaluable database of sampling.
