A collection of special Earth Day messages from several organizations that are helping the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Some valuable tips and cool wildlife within! Thanks to the Susquehannock Wildlife Society for including the Conservation Society of York County in this production ☺️
For the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day we wanted to do something special. We asked our friends for some help so that despite these challenging times, the message of hope and call to action that inspired this day could carry on. Our partners throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed are working as hard as ever to protect this incredible resource.
The world has certainly changed a lot since 1970 and we have made a lot of progress. Species have been saved, pollution reduction has occurred, and recycling is part of every day life. But we still have a long way to go, with many threats to the future of our Earth still looming it will take all of us working together to protect our resources and create a brighter future.
Here in the Chesapeake Bay watershed we know this all too well. From Cooperstown, New York to Virginia Beach, across Maryland, Pennsylvania and portions of West Virginia and Delaware, this National Treasure is in all of our hands. Luckily we have so many hardworking groups, individuals, and agencies dedicated to protecting it so that we may solve our challenges and pass on a healthier Bay. Much like how all of our streams, rivers and wetlands flow together to create the Chesapeake, these partners are united in their work to protect and improve our watershed and all that depends on it. These folks represent some of those who keep the spirit of Earth Day alive every single day.
