The Maryland Coastal Bays Program invites you to help celebrate their 15th Anniversary! On Friday, June 17th, 2011 at 4:30 pm, join the Coastal Bays Crew at Fager’s Island (60th Street and the bay in OC) to enjoy the party.
The Maryland Coastal Bays Program exists to protect and conserve the waters and surrounding watershed of Maryland’s coastal bays. By enhancing our bay’s ecological values and sustainable use we can ensure that the bays will be a huge inspiration for both present and future generations. The 2010 Maryland Coastal Bays “Report Card” will also be revealed to the public at this event. Want to know how our bays rank in comparison to other watersheds? Come find out!
Part of the National Estuary Program, the Coastal Bays Program is a partnership among the towns of Ocean City and Berlin, National Park Service, Worcester County, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Maryland Departments of Natural Resources, Agriculture, Environment, and Planning, which have come together to produce the first ever management plan for the coastal bays.
Established in 1987 under the Clean Water Act, the National Estuary Program was developed to protect economically and environmentally sensitive estuaries across the United States by engaging all user groups.
