"I taught the course Ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay in the Baltimore City Public School System at Patterson High School, so the Bay means a lot to me. The flora and fauna that live in and around the Chesapeake Bay region are truly unique. This uniqueness drives home the point that we must keep our waters clean. Otherwise those little frogs and other amazing animals dependent on the Bay for life, will become but a memory. Clean water is important not only for the life in the Bay, but also for those who love recreational swimming, fishing, crabbing, and a waterman's livelihood. Through teaching, it was my hope to embed and motivate . . . to drive others to love and care for our Bay and its tributaries as much as I do."
Ensure that Myrtha and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights like these in our watershed. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint!
