The Baltimore Harbor Watershed Association’s mission is to protect and improve the environmental quality and natural beauty of the Baltimore Harbor and its tributaries. Specifically, they plan on installing a trash netting/collection system around the harbor, creating educational trash programs in the neighborhoods and school systems, and addressing the water quality issues in the city’s harbor and tributaries. More information on the organization, the watershed, and volunteer opportunities can be found on their website.

The Chesapeake Bay Program is a regional partnership that brings together members of various state, federal, academic, and local watershed organizations to create and adopt policies that support the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay. The program works within a collaborative organizational structure where members from partner organizations participate in a series of committees. Their website is a host of information on the land, water, and people of the Bay and the restoration efforts currently underway. It also features information on how citizens, whether students, teachers, business owners, or government officials, can help get involved.
