MLK Jr Day of Service Cleanup – join us in January at this annual cleanup event! The purpose of the event is to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by inspiring citizens to give back to the community. Mobile United’s Natural Resources Task Force, which DRCR is a member of, organizes this event. We always host a site located in the Dog River watershed that is a litter hotspot and work together to successfully remove thousands of pounds of trash and debris before it drains into the river. It’s OUR River, let’s keep it clean!

General Membership Meetings – gather with fellow members to share DRCR news and camaraderie with all our River friends! The General Membership meets twice annually, in January and July. These meetings are always a good time with interesting guest speakers and DRCR merch for sale! We have a strong “Invite a Friend” policy too! If you know someone who shares in our mission to preserve the health of Dog River please invite them to attend and join our membership!

MudBottom Revival Music Festival – annual Spring fundraiser event that is a fun filled afternoon created to raise awareness and funds for DRCR. The festival always features a fantastic music lineup under a shaded oak-covered spot on the banks of beautiful Dog River!

Alabama Coastal Cleanup – annual Fall cleanup event held the 3rd Saturday of September at Dog River park where volunteers work together to get the trash out of the splash!

Each year thousands of pounds of litter is captured and removed from the river. Be a good river steward and come out to help improve the water quality and health of our river!

Dog River Fishing Tournament – annual Fall fundraiser event that is designed to raise funds for DRCR while anglers of all ages compete to hook the biggest catch! This family friendly event always concludes with an exciting weigh in! Cash prizes and trophies for our winners!

Holiday Party – mingle with members, sponsors, donors, and our partners and enjoy holiday cheer on the river at our annual holiday party! This festive gathering features horderves, drinks, and a speech from our Board President. This is our opportunity to say THANK YOU to all our River friends, whom none of our success would be possible without.
