Play associated audio

The Nanticoke River Alliance works with experts and volunteers to monitor the health of the river and share information about the water source. The 725,000-acre Nanticoke River watershed provides a habitat for many threatened plants and animals, including the highest concentration of bald eagles in the northeastern United States. Comprised of partners from Maryland and Delaware, the alliance works with farmers to explore solutions for reducing runoff of nutrients from farms that could affect the health of the river. The group also collaborates with policy makers to develop approaches to conservation of the watershed, and engages the public in conversations about how to protect the Nanticoke. The Alliance includes representatives from industry, agriculture, environmental, business, community, state, local, and federal governmental organizations.
