Our Advisory Council provides strategic guidance and insight to help Charleston Waterkeeper achieve its mission

Charleston Waterkeeper is committed to protecting and restoring the public’s right to clean, healthy waterways. The Advisory Council supports Charleston Waterkeeper and its mission by brining together a group of established professionals to advise our board and staff on specialized organizational matters and general program and advocacy goals.

The council leverages each member’s unique experience, expertise, and resources to help guide Charleston Waterkeeper’s development, boots-on-the-water programs, and advocacy work. Members are called upon individually or in groups to provide strategic advice and gather as a group both formally and informally as necessary.
