The Pelican

The inspiration for this giving level is the pelican, the iconic image of the river, which has long been the Elizabeth River Society’s trademark.  Pelicans, like the working model of the Elizabeth River Project, are known for their collaborative nature—travelling in flocks, hunting cooperatively and breeding colonially. Thanks to donors like you, PELICANS ARE ALREADY MORE PLENTIFUL in our restoration areas! Help us continue to create an environment where pelicans thrive. Send your Pelican Society gift today.

JOIN FORCES WITH COMMUNITY LEADERS who are creating a priceless legacy: a clean river for future generations.
