The Magothy River Association is an all-volunteer group representing about 46 communities along the Magothy River Watershed. Our efforts are devoted to projects that protect the welfare of the river and its inhabitants, such as:
*maintaining an oyster nursery at Downs Park
*restoring an oyster bar
*monitoring water quality
*helping to restore seagrasses
The Chesapeake Bay Commission is a policy leader in the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay. As a tri-state legislative assembly representing Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania, the Commission’s leadership covers a full spectrum of Bay issues: from managing living resources and conserving land, to protecting water quality. By combining its unique access to both the legislative and executive branches of each Bay state with well-honed skills in research, policy-development and consensus building, the Commission has achieved consistently strong and effective results in pursuit of Bay restoration goals.
