In Defense of Water 2023

On Thursday, September 28, 2023, Waterkeepers Chesapeake will gather at Patagonia Baltimore for our 7th 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 our Waterkeeper Outstanding Win (WOW) Award and Water Warrior Award.

This year is our 10th anniversary, and we want you to join us and share the excitement. On September 28, help us celebrate 10 years of harnessing the collective power of our local Waterkeepers to protect clean water and our communities. As the premiere fundraiser for Waterkeepers Chesapeake, In Defense of Water raises much-needed funds to support our Waterkeepers, who are on the front lines defending our precious resources, enforcing protective clean water laws, and demanding equal justice and access to clean water. 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.

We thank Patagonia Baltimore for generously hosting our event at their fabulous new store at 700 S. Caroline Street, and offering awesome Patagonia merchandise for our raffle!

Thank you to our Sponsors
