Will the next President of the United States help Save the Bay and clean the nation's waters?
If elected,* Captain John Smith will.
There is no debate that the Chesapeake Bay is a national treasure. However, the Bay will not be restored without the full support and involvement of the federal government, especially the next President.
"I stand not just for a clean Chesapeake Bay; I stand for clean rivers and streams all across America. For if we can clean up the Chesapeake Bay, and working together we bloody well can clean up every stream, river, and bay in this country. We can make the Chesapeake a model for restoration success, for the rest of the nation and for the rest of the world."
Let the candidates and our next President know you support Captain John Smith's campaign to:
Reduce pollution from sewage treatment plants and runoff by upgrading treatment plants and implementing agricultural and urban best management practices.
Preserve and restore natural habitats by expanding conservation programs for crabs, oysters, fish and other wildlife; protecting wetlands; and promoting conservation easements.
Promote outdoor education by ensuring schools include standards and funding for outdoor environmental education.
You can take action in several ways, from signing our petition and sharing it with friends to joining the campaign or downloading badges for your website.
Together we can make a difference!
