Volunteers for the Mattawoman Watershed Society were surprised when a committee with the Charles County Arts Alliance arrived at their tent on June 7 to deliver the 1st Place award for having the most beautiful tent. 

ArtsFest is an annual outdoor event that celebrates all forms of art, from visual to performing. The festival features nearly continuous performances by varied groups, artists exhibiting their work for sale, and exhibits by heritage and environmental groups. Food is also readily available from an array of vendors. The annual event is a fun and unique experience for the entire family. Look for us next year!

This year, MWS offered hands-on children's activities, and explained to attendees that a good comprehensive growth plan would be good not only for our waters, but for everyone. Unfortunately, even with Mattawoman at the "tipping point" for serious degradation from the polluted runoff of runaway growth, a majority of the Charles County commissioners still favor unbridled development.
