It’s not all about us. There are many local environmental organizations doing great things… along with us, of course! Here’s a sampling.

Magothy River Association

If you’re a fan of the Magothy, you might like to know that MRA has several unique holiday gifts available including a Magothy Trivia Game and a frameable watershed map Learn more.

Severn River Association

Three things about the Severn River Association (SRA), the organization that speaks for our capital river.

1 – SRA’s water quality monitoring program just wrapped up. The number crunching begins! Learn more.

2 – Earlier this week, SRA presented a talk on Oyster restoration in the river. You can see the recording here.

3 – Bay Weekly recently wrote about how the Severn River Association is bringing residents to the shoreline to discover the creatures that live in the shallows. If you live along the Severn River you may want to involve your community next spring and summer. There’s a lot to be learned from little creatures like mummichog, bull minnows, Atlantic silversides, pipefish, gobies, blennies, mosquito fish and even seahorses – all found by curious citizen scientists under this SRA program. Learn more.

4 – SRA is a GreenGive partner.

Oyster Recovery Partnership

Are you serving oysters at your Thanksgiving celebration? Be sure to put those empty oyster shells where they belong – NOT in the trash, but in an Oyster Recovery Partnership bin – so the shells can later be host material for baby oysters. There are lots of convenient drop-off sites. Learn more.

The Sanctuary has many events has many events every week like a stream water chemistry field trip tomorrow and a post-Thanksgiving Turkey Trail Run. And the walking trails are beautiful. Learn more.
