River Night at the Shorebirds – June 23, 6:30pm!
Help Us Raise Funds to Support Wicomico Creekwatchers Programs & Have Fun Too!
The Wicomico River Watershed covers 182 square miles of land in Wicomico and Somerset Counties in Maryland and Sussex County in Delaware. Ultimately, all rain water that flows into the river makes its way into Tangier Sound and the Chesapeake Bay. Learn more about the State of the Wicomico River Report Card during WET’s River Night, with the opportunity to speak to our local experts and educators about the 2016 water monitoring results. Production and presentation of the Report Card was supported by a grant of the Chesapeake Bay Trust.
The mission of Wicomico Creekwatchers water monitoring program collects and develops objective, scientifically credible water quality data by recruiting and mobilizing a grassroots volunteer force that monitors the waters of the Wicomico River and its tributaries on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore. Through its work, Creekwatchers advances efforts of citizens, businesses, and public officials to ensure that public policies and other management tools adequately protect and preserve Wicomico River water quality.
