The Magothy River is a gem of the middle Chesapeake Bay area and is rich in history and recreational activity. Because of over-development in the area, it is not as clean as it could be and swimming is often unavailable after heavy rains due to overflow of waste water.
There are groups who pay attention to the needs of this river and one is the Magothy River Association.
This is the presentation to a project produced by the Magothy River Association and funded by the Chesapeake Bay Trust, designed to help boaters discover the beauty of the Magothy River.
From website: The Magothy River Association (MRA) is dedicated to the preservation and improvement of the water quality, plants, and wildlife of the Magothy River and its watershed. Founded in 1946, the MRA is an all-volunteer group, incorporated as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) charitable organization representing over 300 individual members and 30 community associations within the Magothy River Watershed. The organization designs and executes projects that restore and protect the welfare of the river and its watershed.
The MRA meets the third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm at the Berrywood Community Clubhouse. This can vary so please check our Facebook Page for up-to-date announcements and other timely information.
