PRKN's Annual Gala, now in its eighth year, celebrates the work that PRKN does all year round to enforce clean water laws in the Potomac Watershed. Party on the Pier brings together supporters for a night in honor of those who protect and defend our Nation's most treasured natural resource.

The work of Potomac Riverkeeper Network has never been more timely, relevant, or critical. Together, we can work to protect the right to clean water for six million people.

Your generous and continued support helps to ensure that the Potomac Watershed is swimmable, fishable, and drinkable.
