April Peterson is the owner of River Rock Outfitter in Fredericksburg, VA. Since opening her shop she has been committed not only to the community, but also to protecting our water resources along the Rappahannock River and thus, the Chesapeake Bay. She has hosted and supported countless events to educate and take action to protect our waterways. She has sponsored and participated in many litter clean-ups, hosted, and sponsored educational movie events, she even developed a now annual music festival event called “Rock the River” in support of educating about and protecting the Rappahannock. April is constantly reaching out to local non-profits to connect them with grant opportunities she learns about through her distributors and elsewhere. April serves on the volunteer board for Friends of the Rappahannock and Main Street Program in Fredericksburg. She gives selflessly of her time and resources and never asks for recognition. She is a true Champion of the Chesapeake!

April and Rock River, Congratulations. Thank you so very much for your commitment to the Rappahannock and thus our bay, and thus our watershed. Combining business, commitment and caring for our environment is, as you know far better than I do, essential for creating a better future for all who live in the watershed and its plants, animal, air and water systems. Thank you for your work, and for your example.
