We live in such a sweet spot in time and space here in Augusta County, Virginia, in 2023. The natural beauty and resources make our area the envy of many. Friends of Middle River consider Middle River a big part of this sweet spot and as we move into another year, we are excited and determined to bring more Middle River to you. Our Mission to promote the stewardship and enjoyment of the Middle River Watershed through volunteer action, education, science, and outreach guides us to find more ways to help us all understand, love, and conserve this fantastic natural resource.

Although the past few years of COVID have hampered our outreach, we continued to find ways to modify our activities and projects to monitor the river, clean up trash, and teach about its life-giving force and the many recreational opportunities it provides.

I have been blessed personally by being part of this unique grassroots organization, and I hope you will consider joining us in our Mission. We are constantly looking for more friends to make a difference in our local world and beyond. Feel free to explore our website. It has a wealth of information about Middle River, FOMR, and the many ways you can make a difference.  

I hope I see you in, on, or around Middle River in the upcoming year. 



John Bauman, Board Chair
