You're Making a Difference!

When you support Potomac Conservancy, you are taking a stand for clean water protections and telling our leaders that our hometown river — the river that adds so much to our quality of life — is worth saving. 

Fueled by member support, we are building a local movement for clean water and delivering significant conservation wins, but we need your help to achieve a swimmable and fishable Potomac by 2025.

We're Telling Trump to Fix His Clear-Cutting Disaster

While leaders and businesses in the Washington, DC, metro area are embracing river friendly growth, Donald Trump unnecessarily destroyed one and a half miles of trees along the Potomac River.

Our petition demanding Trump replant the trees struck a nerve with the community. More than 6,400 local residents spoke up and lent their voices to clean water, and now we've taken the petition straight to the man in charge. 

Learn more about how we're holding Trump accountable >
