Why attend the AirWave Festival? Clean water of course!!

Here is an interview on Talk of Alabama with Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s Charles Scribner and the Coosa Riverkeeper’s Karli Riley describing why we celebrate clean water every year at AirWave.

“AirWave is one of my favorite events because we get to enjoy it with our local Waterkeepers, Alabama partners Cahaba Riverkeeper and Coosa Riverkeeper,” said Charles Scribner executive director of Black Warrior Riverkeeper. Our three Waterkeeper organizations are honored to share support from the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham, Good People, and all the generous AirWave  sponsors.
