It's a wonderful opportunity to support your favorite groups working on water, land and trails to ensure we all can enjoy our waters.

And, if you donate during the GreenGive you can double your support. A secret donor is offering a 100% match for all donations of $100 or more! You’re doubling your support! $100 instantly becomes $200, $250 turns into $500!!!

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

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.
