Program description:
The fundamental objective of FOCJCW is stewardship to promote the overall long-term health and beauty of the Cabin John Creek Watershed. This, in turn, promotes the health of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay watersheds. A major supporting goal is to help educate our members and other watershed residents about water quality issues and possible solutions. To achieve these main objectives, FOCJCW is pursuing a variety of
activities, including quarterly monitoring; annual trash removal days; a "Weed Warriors" program to remove invasive exotic weeds; commenting on Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Cabin John Creek Watershed Restoration Study.
