Through their Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs), Eastern Shore Counties are playing a pivotal leadership role in saving the Chesapeake Bay. The Eastern Shore has emerged at the forefront of all the rural regions in the Chesapeake Bay watershed for your WIP work. However, there are serious challenges ahead to get the job done. From the counties, continued action is needed. And ESLC, our partners, and the State need to build a net of funding and support for our local governments. Together we can meet this challenge with the resourcefulness and ingenuity that makes us the Eastern Shore.
