The Baltimore area is rather diverse in many different ways. Environmentally, dedicated supporters of the environment are working hard to address the many different issues they face - clean water, clean air, clean streets and more. There are Adopt-A-Stream programs as well as community road side clean-up crews, and many other efforts to make a difference within the Chesapeake Bay watershed. These groups all have one primary goal: Clean up the Chesapeake Bay!
On February 8, 2014, representatives from five different groups in east Baltimore County gathered at the Maryland Colabs, 505 Eastern Blvd., Essex, to collaborate on what they are doing and what they feel needs to be done. The brainstorming session was awesome. Ideas flowed freely like the waters of the Back River and Middle River watersheds flow into the Bay. These few enthusiastic and energetic environmentalists see the need to work together to accomplish their ultimate goal.
Forming a coalition that will harness the synergy of the many different groups was suggested. Another meeting is scheduled for March 8 with a similar goal – to bring more groups to the table to discuss what is being done, what needs to be done and to find solutions to existing problems.
For more information on the efforts to form this coalition, contact Anna through her website. Mark your calendar to attend the March 8, 11AM meeting at the Maryland Colabs. Interested but can’t make the meeting, send a message of your concerns, your availability, etc.
Let’s work together to create a healthier, cleaner environment.
