HRC, founded in 1991, for the preservation and conservation of the Hocking River in Southeastern Ohio.

Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains

the Hocking River passes through three Ohio

counties on its way to the Ohio River at

Hockingport, Ohio. The Hocking River is typical of many

eastern North American rivers experiencing

the changes that come with continued

population growth and development.

The Hocking River Commission believes

that development can be planned to be

compatible with the river.  Our

goal is to preserve the benefits a clean,

healthy river can provide to the communities

it passes through.
