The Herring Run Watershed Association’s goal is to improve the environmental quality of the Herring Run Watershed for the benefit of its communities and the Chesapeake Bay. While mobilizing volunteers for advocacy, restoration, and education, HRWA’s main focus is the creation and implementation of watershed action plans. Their website features information on the watershed, the association, and ongoing volunteer opportunities.
