Hard Scrabble Ranch Event Canceled!

For the first time ever, we've had to postpone our annual fundraiser due to rain and cold weather!  What irony for an organization dedicated to keeping water in the Brazos!!!  The good news is Hard Scrabble is working with us to reschedule, and we are looking towards next Spring.  Those of you who have bought tickets may choose to hold onto them as 'rain checks' or get a refund!
We have some timely auction items and we will either start an on-line auction, or work with the donors to have an auction at their place!  Stay tuned for our new Annual Dinner Date and mini-Auction information!

The Brazos River Needs Your Help

A whole river is mountain country and hill country and flat country and swamp and delta country, is rock bottom and sand bottom and weed bottom and mud bottom, is blue, green, red, clear, brown, wide, narrow, fast, slow, clean, and filthy water, is all the kinds of trees and grasses and all the breeds of animals and birds and man that pertain and have ever pertained to its changing shores...

Goodbye to a River

John Graves' Memorial

The members of Friends of the Brazos River are concerned about restoring a sound ecological environment to the Brazos, especially between Lakes Possum Kingdom and Whitney. We invite you to join in our efforts... Several years ago, the Brazos River Conservation Coalition, a group of concerned landowners and citizens in North Texas, succeeded in passage of SB-1354 which created the John Graves Scenic Riverway in Parker and Palo Pinto Counties. The FBR seeks to extend those gains by working with the Brazos River Authority and State agencies (TPWD, TRDB, TCEQ) in obtaining minimum instream flows to ensure a healthy and sound ecological environment for the Brazos River, especially upstream of Lake Whitney.

Won't you join our efforts?

Friends of the Brazos will:

  • Sponsor river cleanups and habitat restoration programs

  • Work for the passage of legislation beneficial to the Brazos River

  • Strive for increased appreciation and respect for the precious natural resource that is the Brazos River

  • Educate our members and the public about responsibilities of river recreationists. We must work together to find a way to stop litter, trespass, and other irresponsible acts on the Brazos River
