Clean The Bay Day
THANK YOU for going above and beyond in your commitment to better quality in local streams and rivers, and the Bay. And check back with us for updated numbers.
Some odd things found include a case of un-opened beer, an unopened gas mask canister, a marijuana pipe, bait boxes, a car muffler, shotgun shells, and aluminum furniture.
View tons of pictures or be the first to add your photos of the day's activities to our Facebook Fan Page's wall facebook.com/chesapeakebay. You also can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can continue to Save the Bay throughout the year by becoming a better Bay steward at home.
1. Speak Out! Let your voice be heard regarding important legislation affecting our Chesapeake Bay and rivers. Write or call your senators and congressional representative, urging them to vote in an environmentally responsible way.
2. Natural Cleaners Only - use natural, non-toxic, phosphate-free cleaners like baking soda or borax with hot water for most household cleaning tasks. You’ll be reducing toxic chemicals in wastewater while saving money.
