Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy is active in a number of coalitions across the area. Coalitions are a great way to bring together diverse groups of people and organizations with differing perspectives to address local issues.
One coalition that we support is the Choose Clean Water Coalition, and given that hurricane Irene is coming our way and we’re about to see a lot of water, I thought I’d highlight that here today.
The Choose Clean Water coalition brings together people and nearly 200 organizations from Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia, working together to help everyone in the region choose clean water.
Clean water is truly one of the very few things we cannot live without, yet here in the US we certainly take it for granted.
Here in Loudoun, we live in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, and some serious work needs to be done to restore the habitat and thereby the water that runs through our communities.
