1000 Friends of Maryland seeks primarily to fight poorly planned development. They work to protect Maryland’s natural areas and waterways, strengthen neighborhoods, and restore Maryland’s cities through education, technical assistance, and advocacy. Protecting historic and natural resources, assuring efficient transportation choices, and supporting development that takes the public’s interest into account are all part of their commitment.

An offshoot of the Gaithersburg, Maryland-based Izaak Walton League of America, renowned as one of the country’s oldest conservation organizations, Save Our Streams (SOS) works nationally to clean stream beds, restore deficient stream banks, and monitoring stream health. Largely a volunteer-supported group, SOS urges citizens to involve themselves in self-directed projects that will assist America’s many at-risk waterways.
