Barnett Reservoir Foundation

The Barnett Reservoir Foundation is a tax exempt, non-profit 501 (c)3 and was founded to assist the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District in promoting recreation and interest in the Ross Barnett Reservoir for businesses and families. The Foundation raises funds for projects to enhance and improve the quality of life for residents and provide recreational opportunities for visitors.

They sponsor and facilitate a number of activities at the Reservoir every year, including the upcoming Gator Bait Hatchlings Kayak Race (in partnership with the Mississippi Wildlife Federation and Academy Sports), the Independence Day Celebration, and Smokin' on the Rez.

Incidentally, the Lighted Boat Parade, a part of the Independence Day Celebration, is now accepting registrations.
