ShoreRivers (formerly Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy) will host its annual State of the Rivers Party on Friday, April 20, at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum (CBMM) in Saint Michaels, Maryland.

The State of the Rivers Party is free and open to the public.

ShoreRivers welcomes and encourages the community to join an evening of conversation and informative discussion as we release their 2017 Midshore Rivers Report Card. The report card reflects data collected by ShoreRivers scientists, Riverkeepers, and more than 50 volunteers in our Creekwatcher water quality monitoring program, which runs from April through October. These results assess water quality at approximately 115 sampling jurisdictions on the Choptank River, Miles River, Wye River, Tred Avon River, Tuckahoe River, Harris Creek, Broad Creek, Island Creek, La Trappe Creek, and Eastern Bay on the southern tip of Kent Island. This is an opportunity for the community to learn about the health and challenges of our local waterways and how the most recent grades compare to previous years.

MRC staff will also discuss other current programs being undertaken in 2018.
