THE CHOPTANK TRIBUTARY TEAM is a group of concerned citizens, local government representatives, farmers, watermen, sportsmen, and business people who join together to promote wise stewardship of the watershed in which they live and work.
Using a watershed approach that crosses state and local boundaries, the Trib Team helps to:
identify sources of pollution
guide decisionmaking and policy
propose restoration activities
support Best Management Practices
and increase awareness
MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of the Maryland Tributary Teams is to build consensus and advocate for policy solutions, to promote stewardship through education, and to coordinate activities and projects necessary to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay's water quality and assure healthy watersheds with abundant and diverse living resources.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Thursday,
May 9 at 6 p.m. at the Talbot DPW office on Bay St. in Easton.
This is the last meeting before our exciting River Appreciation Week
begins on May 28!
We’ll be reviewing the schedule of events for the Appreciation
Week and finalizing the publicity efforts to inform the public about
this Week. This will also be the last formal meeting of the
Choptank Trib Team.
