Earth Korps Update!!

Hey everyone,

I know it seems like it has been forever since we have posted. Well that’s because it has and we have been doing all kinds of awesome stuff over the past month to get Earth Korps geared up and ready for this spring.

for starters we have finally got our line-up finalized for the 2013 Shenandoah Riverside Festival and are updating our website as we speak to bring everyone up to date with this years bands and early bird ticket sale specials. I can guarantee that you do not want to miss this years line-up. We will be announcing bands as we go along from now until the festival hits starting with last years late night favorite- HOLY GHOST TENT REVIVAL!! Who if you remembered correctly were the guys that had you dancing yourselves silly all night long.



Were no even close to being done so stay tuned on that note and be sure to check out in the next week or so to see the new flyer and other updates as well.

We are also getting ready to open the slots for our 2013 craft and food vendors for the Shenandoah Riverside Festival. By the way, this is to take place on June 14th and 15th this year at Watermelon Park. If you would like to be considered for one of these spot please send an e-mail to

We are now Seeking SPONSORS for the 2013 Shenandoah Riverside Festival. If you would like to be considered please send an e-mail to There are some great perks to being a sponsor this year other than just having your companies name posted everywhere. We will be having other incentives such as free tickets and close parking, things to that nature so send us an email. We’d love to have you.

We had some great news in that we have been approved for a 3 year stay at Watermelon Park which is a huge deal and will ensure the success and growth of the festival and of Earth Korps at least for the next 3 years haha.

We are in the process of writing some great grants and planning some awesome river cleans for this spring so keep your ears and eyes posted on those. We are going to try to get more youth groups involved this year such as boy scouts or church youth groups. If you have any affiliation with any of these types of groups on the Shenandoah River and would like for your kids to get a first hand lesson in environmental appreciation please send an e-mail to and we will arrange a river clean for them to take place in in 2013.



Also we would just like to continue to thank all of those who have supported and stand by the mission of cleaning up the Shenandoah River and we will continue to do as much as we can to help this great natural resource!



Hey folks,

We have been in the middle of this boat landing project, the 4th annual Shenandoah Riverside Festival, and knee deep in grant writing season so sorry for the delayed updates and blogs. We are still hard at it and still have the rivers best interest on our minds.

I wanted to give a few shout out’s on the boat landing project to some of the unsung hero’s for this adventure.

Ths is a take from one of my associates who has been involved heavily in this project.
Shenandoah Riverkeeper and VDGIF – are working together to upgrade the river access points one by one.  Riverton was chosen as our pilot project from which we will learn what it takes to upgrade the public access areas, including needs and budget.
Dominion and Zachary – came to us to ask what good environmental project they could do in this area to improve conditions in the river and/or improve public river use.  They are funding the project entirely
The four organizations above scoured all the regional access points, determined which ones needed what, and then worked to choose the Riverton site and come up with the list of desired upgrades and improvements.
Earthkorps – Chosen as fiscal agent, and has been a sort of secretary, foot horse for this project haha.
There are many individual names of folks who have had a hand in this that I will go back and mention at some point when I get a list in front of me. It seems that this may very well be the beginning of some radical improvements on the Shenandoah River and we should all continue to do our part in the name of conservation. Thanks to all involved.


Hey folks,

Thought I would let you all know that Captain Billy’s Seafood in Woodstock VA hasagreed to donate 10% of all profits from this coming weekends sales back to Earth Korps Inc. So go on in there and get yourself some good food fresh from the Chesapeake. Makes sense, the Shenandoah does end up right where they pull their food from. A great example of how and why we should all be working together in the name of conservation of our local watersheds.

We are coming into our planning season here soon so you won’t see quite as much activity from Earth Korps, but don’t worry we’re still hard at it and will keep you up to date on upcoming river cleans and events. Speaking of river cleans, why not come out and help Friends of the North Fork do one of their annual cleans here soon on October 27th. More details to come. Stay posted! As always, thanks to all of those who support their local river clean up company in one way or another it’s entirely due to our fans that we are able to do what we do.
