ShoreRivers Completes Integration of Three Legacy Organizations
Launches First e-Newsletter: ShoreRivers News
We are delighted to report that on January 2, 2018, it became official: three robust Eastern Shore conservation organizations—Chester River Association, Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy, and Sassafras River Association—are now united under one banner as ShoreRivers! We hereby launch our first monthly e-newsletter: ShoreRiver News.
As in this edition, each month we will feature five sections. First, seminal news that affects the new organization or the entire complex of rivers we serve. Following that will be a section of news (under your respective Riverkeeper link) that is local to each watershed. If you are particularly interested in one river or one watershed, you can quickly find the information you are looking for.
The big news for ShoreRivers is that the integration was successfully completed. ShoreRivers will restore and protect our Eastern Shore waters through science-based advocacy, restoration, and education. Our three legacy organizations each have a deep history of working collaboratively to improve the health of the waters in our communities, and that mission will continue. By joining together, we have become more than just the sum of our parts—we are one united and committed voice with more influence on policy, more capacity to enact programs, and more potential to undertake large restoration projects to reduce pollution.
Click here to view the members of the expanded ShoreRivers staff, its governing board, and its three watershed boards. All of us along with you and our 3,500-strong cadre of members and volunteers will be on the rivers and creeks, astride the farm fields and forests, and in the classrooms and legislative sessions testing, teaching, restoring, and advocating for clean water and river protections.
We look forward to the exponential impact that we are confident our new organization, SHORERIVERS, will have.
Cheers and best wishes for a happy New Year, and a cleaner, healthier environment in 2018 and beyond!
