Pollution Resolution Challenge

Is one of your goals to be more green in 2017? Join the ChooseClean Water Coalition for the first ever Pollution Resolution Challenge! 

Organizations from around the Chesapeake Bay watershed are joining together to make New Year's Resolutions that will help improve our local environment, and we want you to be part of it!
