On November 17, Waterkeepers Chesapeake will gather at the beautiful Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, Maryland for our 6th Annual In Defense of Water Awards and Reception. We’ll celebrate our clean water successes and honor our Waterkeepers and community members for their outstanding achievements in advancing water and climate justice with the presentation of our annual Water Warrior Award and Waterkeeper Outstanding Win (WOW) Award.

This year is special, and we want you to join us and share the excitement. The Clean Water Act turns 50 years old; and as Waterkeepers, we are on the front lines defending our precious resources, enforcing this critical legislation, and demanding equal justice and access to clean water. Even 50 years after its signing, our work putting this revolutionary law into action is more important than ever. And we can’t do it without your support.

As the premiere fundraiser for Waterkeepers Chesapeake, In Defense of Water raises much-needed funds to support our Waterkeepers and to support our Clean Water Act 50th Anniversary Campaign (see www.CWA50.org). With your investment, you’ll support the only organization that harnesses the grassroots power, legal expertise, and scientific know-how of our Waterkeepers to address regional threats to clean water.
