Photo of the Week: The Bay Wins

Earlier today, in an historic win for clean water across the region, the U.S. Supreme Court denied the request of the American Farm Bureau Federation and its allies to take up their case challenging the legality of the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint. For all who love the Bay and the rivers and streams that feed it, THIS is a day to remember. 

And images, like the one above, remind us why this place--and all that call it home--are worth saving. Thanks for joining with us in this Save the Bay movement!
