TAKE ACTION: Protect Farm Bill Conservation Programs 
Right now, the House and Senate are behind closed doors, negotiating a new Farm Bill. Bay restoration relies heavily on key conservation programs within the bill that protect our local water quality. Please make sure your representatives preserve this vital funding to Bay state farmers. TAKE ACTION NOW!
Good Things Are Happening
Across the watershed, from Pennsylvania to Virginia, people are pulling together to restore the Bay and its waters. Through a variety of innovative, collaborative clean water projects, good things are starting to happen!
