Join 31,000 neighbors who are leading the fight for clean water and a healthy Potomac River!


Virginia Needs YOU - to vote!

Statewide elections are on November 5th. Are you ready to go to the polls?

Voting is the #1 way to take action for clean water and our environment. Local elections are vital and your votes count more in races with typically low voter turnout.

Inspire your neighbors to use #GetVocalActLocal for clean water by taking our vote pledge today.

(And make sure you’re registered by October 15th!)


The vote results are in! The public names two Potomac River dolphins.

Potomac Conservancy and the Potomac-Chesapeake Dolphin Project thank everyone who participated in our 2019 dolphin naming contest.

The Potomac River dolphins formally known as D1 and D2 are dolphin-ately in love with their new names!

Find out if winning names are:

Cherry and Blossom;
Ebb and Flow; or
Mac and Chessie
