Pennsylvania agriculture has done much to improve water quality in our local rivers and streams and the Chesapeake Bay. Yet that positive story is often not told.

Now is the time for farmers to tell that story!

Farmers in the Chesapeake Bay watershed are invited to participate in a survey to inventory conservation practices on their farms. Completing this survey will help Pennsylvania agriculture get the credit it deserves for improving water quality. Please note that participation in this survey is voluntary and names and locational information will be kept completely confidential.
