Coosa River Basin Initiative, Inc.



About Us

CRBI is a 501c3 grassroots environmental organization based in Rome, Georgia with the mission of protecting, preserving, and restoring one of North America's most biologically diverse river systems - the upper Coosa River basin. Since 1993, our staff, board and members have served as advocates for the wise stewardship of the natural resources of the Upper Coosa River basin, or watershed, which stretches from southeastern Tennessee and north central Georgia to Weiss Dam in Northeast Alabama. This includes the Coosa River, the Etowah and Oostanaula rivers and the tributaries of these waterways as well as the land drained by these streams and the air that surrounds this land area.
