Advocacy and Enforcement
ShoreRivers advocates for our waterways in a number of ways—developing and influencing state and local policy, lobbying for beneficial state legislation and regulatory change, testifying at bill hearings in Annapolis, working with our county commissioners to effect positive change, and reaching out to our members to call and write to their elected officials. We work on the local, state, and federal level to ensure that laws and regulations reflect what is best for the health of Eastern Shore waterways.
Our Riverkeepers regularly patrol our waterways - monitoring river health, identifying pollution hot spots, and looking for illegal pollution sources. When necessary we take legal action to curtail polluters.
Contact your local Riverkeeper to get involved, and sign up to receive our monthly newsletters to find out how you can help.
