Public Invited to Participate in Tributary Team Wade-Ins this Weekend

Free Events Planned in Charles, Harford and Anne Arundel Counties

Since 1997, when retired State Senator Bernie Fowler challenged Maryland’s Tributary Teams to use the Sneaker Index to visually assess water quality in their watersheds, June has unofficially become Wade-In Month across Maryland.
