Our work in Maryland and Washington, D.C., is focused on two areas where our outcomes can have the greatest impact: Clean Water and Climate Resilience.
Our efforts under these two pillars include both advocating for policies in the legislature and on-the-ground conservation work that spans the region - from western Maryland's Central Appalachian forests to our nation's capital and beyond to the Chesapeake Bay.
- RURAL SOLUTIONS. Engaging with Maryland’s largest industry, agriculture, to keep nutrients on farms and out of our streams and rivers.
- URBAN SOLUTIONS. Unleashing the power of nature to secure clean drinking water and help make cities more resilient, livable places where both nature and people thrive.
- COASTAL SOLUTIONS. Utilizing natural solutions to help protect coastal habitats and communities from rising seas and the more frequent and intense storms associated with climate change.
- FOREST SOLUTIONS. Protecting and restoring healthy, connected forests that can enable habitats, wildlife and people to flourish as our climate changes.
