MWS won a photo contest taken during a trash clean-up on the shores of the Mattawoman Creek tidal estuary. The effort was part of the April 11, 2015 Potomac River Watershed Cleanup sponsored by the Alice Ferguson Foundation. To see a high resolution version, and more terrific photos in the top 10, visit this link. 

Of course, it's not all about the trash. What under the water matters too. The photo might be a winner, but right now Mattawoman is losing its vaunted position as "the best, most productive tributary to the Bay" as judged by fisheries managers. Take time to explore the website, and contact us to save this precious place.
