Cape Fear Basin Map

Help Shape the Future of the Cape Fear River

The Cape Fear River Assembly (CFRA) invites you to be a part of the first annual Cape Fear River Forums.  Regardless of whether you call the Deep River, the Haw or the Cape Fear River your watershed home, they are all part of the same Cape Fear River Basin.  It is easy to attend, just pick the forum nearest you:

  • Tuesday, September 26th in Elon
  • Wednesday, September 27th in Fayetteville
  • Thursday, September 28th in Wilmington

Citizen and local government awareness, interest, and concern are critical and increasing.  The Cape Fear River and its tributaries are our main source of drinking water and industry water.  Continuing growth and competing demands for water use across the basin make it more important than ever to hear from you!

Join us for one or more of three forums (locations TBA) to spark a basin-wide discussion and learn about the Cape Fear River and key subbasin (upper, middle and lower) issues and solutions.  What future do you envision for the Cape Fear River?  Several opportunities will be given for participants to share their insights, including an on-site videographer and facilitated activities recording local community voices and reactions to topics presented.

Topics discussed will include stormwater management, agriculture, recreation, fish migration, water pollution threats, green growth, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, riparian buffers, Jordan Lake, and more!

Click here to sign up for updates and details as they develop, including confirmed speakers, locations, partner/sponsor announcements and more.


Help demonstrate the value of collaboration across the basin, get and contribute ideas, engage with others, tell your story and network with those working to protect the Cape Fear River!
