the chesapeake bay received a D+ in environmental quality from the university of maryland's center for environmental science. sad news...there are so many simple things that each one of us can do to help this national treasure during these difficult times.

it has been so dry with stiff winds for a few weeks now, and fire warnings have been issued.
this brush fire in edgewater threatened the harbor, but the winds shifted and all were spared.

since fishing doesnt start for a couple more weeks, do your part to help the bay by joining in one of many clean up efforts in and along one of its tributaries this saturday. the alliance for the chesapeake bay needs volunteers at 150 sites...there are over 300 sites in the potomac river watershed that need cleaning...and blackwater national wildlife refuge would be a great place to do a little debris gathering outside.
