There's a lot to report.
Riverkeeper Report

W/RR LogoThe rivers, creeks and streams that flow into the Chesapeake Bay belong to no single person or entity - they belong to us all. Yet whom do we hold accountable when they are allowed to become impaired or even unsafe? We must hold ourselves - and our government - accountable. Read More...

I love the Springtime! 
Maybe it's because my favorite color is green--but I think there's much more to it than that. It doesn't look - or feel - too much like Spring right now, but it is right around the corner.

In this issue of our quarterly newsletter, you'll find all the exciting upcoming events we have planned. We've been working hard throughout the river to prepare for our busy season.

We also give you a Legislative Report to update you on the environmental bills moving (or not moving) in the General Assembly session, which is underway now.  

Of course, Joe and Will explain all of our Restoration Activities, and you'll also find my Riverkeeper Report on accountability for the Bay cleanup effort.

Thanks for reading and thanks for your support!
