I have lived in the watershed most of my life and spent 28 years of my working life at the Environmental Protection Agency. I am now very fortunate to live where I can see, on a daily basis, one of the key resources I worked to protect and restore. I now volunteer for the Bay.
It is especially gratifying to see bald eagles perching in our yard—a living testimony to the courageous decision 45 years ago by EPA's first Administrator, William D. Ruckelshaus, to ban DDT.
Ensure that Bob and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary places like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint—the plan to Save the Bay!
