The Clean Annapolis River Project (CARP) is a charitable, community-based,
non-governmental organization incorporated in 1990.


Mission Statement:

To enhance the ecological health of the Annapolis River watershed through science, leadership and community engagement.

History of CARP:

CARP was created in 1990 when two unrelated events converged:

(1) The rejection of the Annapolis River system as a candidate for designation as a heritage river
Its selection by the scientific community as a demonstration site for an innovative environmental management initiative

(2) These two events lead to an invitation for CARP to participate in the Atlantic Coastal Action Program (ACAP), an Environment Canada Green Plan initiative until 2010.

Since 1990 CARP has developed several projects that address pertinent environmental issues in the Annapolis River watershed. These projects range from environmental monitoring to public education to habitat restoration to home assessment. Although the focus of our mission is the improvement of the local environment, many of our projects have resulted in economic, societal and health related benefits and expand beyond the bounds of our watershed.
