Photo of the Week: Sunset on Moran Creek

Photo of the Week: Sunset on Moran Creek


This photo was taken on Moran Creek just after a major storm had passed. 

I have lived in the watershed most of my life and spent 28 years of my working life at the Environmental Protection Agency. I am now very fortunate to live where I can see, on a daily basis, one of the key resources I worked to protect and restore. I now volunteer for the Bay.

It is especially gratifying to see bald eagles perching in our yard--a living testimony to the courageous decision 45 years ago by EPA's first Administrator, William D. Ruckelshaus, to ban DDT.
