Today’s episode is part of our ongoing GOING GREEN Series, where we have guests from different environmental groups and initiatives from both local and state level, to shed light on why their work is important and what we can all do to make a difference for the better. EARTH day is every day isn’t? So we want to give you ongoing knowledge and inspiration to take better care of the natural resources we all share and enjoy.
Our guest is Ann Swanson: Executive Director, Chesapeake Bay Commission. Ann Swanson has served as a leader in the Bay restoration for 39 years, the last 34 as the Executive Director of the Chesapeake Bay Commission, a tri-state legislative authority serving the states of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. It is the Commission’s responsibility to sponsor legislation at the state level and to work with state legislators, members of the U.S. Congress, and the federal and state regulatory agencies to coordinate programs aimed at restoring the Chesapeake Bay.
