OPERATION CLEARWATER, 42nd Year, provides regular monitoring of the microbial water quality at your waterfront recreational area. We will monitor fecal enterococci again this year; these bacteria are indicators of contamination of water by fecal wastes of mammals and birds. For further information go to the Operation Clearwater link.



2017 ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

It’s time to consider joining or renewing your membership in the SRA.  We all “Treasure The Severn”, and your $35 ($55 for organizations) membership donation goes entirely toward making a meaningful impact toward a cleaner river - quantifying sources of pollution, educating residents of the watershed, attracting state, county, and NGO resources toward restoration efforts, providing technical and financial assistance to our active individual and community association members, and executing our hugely successful oyster restoration program.  

To review what SRA accomplished in 2016, please go to the President’s Letter.

For online membership or information on where to send your membership donation, go here.

If you need a tax receipt for your 2015 tax deductible donation, please reply directly to the SRA treasurer.

Oyster News, latest and back issues, plus complete details on how to volunteer.
SRA is a leading partner in the Marylanders Grow Oysters Program, sponsored by the MD Department of Natural Resources which distributes free cages and spat to four points in the watershed.  Please volunteer if you have access to a dock to hang cages from and time to care for the oysters from Sept-May.  The young oysters will be planted on the SRA Oyster Sanctuary reef near the Rt 50 bridge, where they will help cleanse the waters of the Severn.
