Michael Parker & Carole Krieger
Michael Parker and his wife, Carole, are preventing pollution at their home in South Norfolk. Through their rain barrel and organic lawn care makeover, done with help from Elizabeth River Project, they are reducing pollution that harms our river. Michael has also made a great effort to keep rainwater on his property with a series of trenches under his deck and pathways that allow water to soak in slowly instead of carrying harmful pollutants and sediments into the river. Michael grew up by the water and is excited to be a part of a movement to bring life back to the river.
"I display my River Star flag as a constant reminder to my neighbors that it is our responsibility to aid in improving our waterways so we can enjoy them, nature can survive, and future generations will be proud of our achievements."
