It’s no secret that this area is home to poor water quality– the Chesapeake Bay only meets about a fifth of its goals on an annual basis— but the Chesapeake Bay Coalition is doing something about it.  This coalition is a group of non-profit organizations that have joined together to guide federal, regional, and local efforts to clean the bay.  If you’re interested in learning more about this effort, consider attending the Choose Clean Water Conference in DC in January.  Early registration ends this Friday, so sign up today!

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at)!
