What you can do

Reduce fertilizer use

Fertilizers on your lawn can run off into streams and pollute the rivers and eventually the bay. Only use fertilizer in the fall, or stop using it altogether.

Carpool and use public transportation

Ridesharing and public transportation reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that go into the atmosphere. This combats climate change effects, like more severe rain events and hotter summers.

Connect with people across the watershed

Working together with people in other communities, not only within your state, but throughout the watershed, is beneficial to help learn from each other and solve restoration problems.
