Edmund A Stanley Jr. Heroic Future Initiative


Enforcement, Engagement, and Empowerment for Change on the Eastern Shore project will substantially reduce nutrient pollution on Maryland’s Eastern Shore over the next five years by implementing a coordinated enforcement and community engagement campaign. In addition to accelerating the pace of pollution reductions necessary to meet Chesapeake Bay restoration goals, will also catalyze a long term transformation on the Lower Eastern Shore that promotes the interests of local communities and sustainable farming over that of the poultry industry.
