Join us in observing Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week – June 2-10!We did our usual walk down the the Bay today. The Bay was muddy and choppy thanks to a moderately stiff north wind, but the temperature was fine, low 70's with low humidity. We found some 19 shark's teeth, mainly small. Sorry, no pictures today.
On Saturday, June 2, the Department of Transportation and Environmental Services participated in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s 30th annual Clean the Bay Day, which served as our Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week kickoff event. We had 94 volunteers at our Oronoco Bay Park cleanup, and they collected 112 bags of trash weighing in at 715 pounds! The volunteers found four tires, a sail boat oar, and a large garden cart!
Participating in Chesapeake Bay watershed cleanup events is just one of the things that you can do to increase awareness of the importance of the Bay this week and throughout the year. . .
