Let justice flow down like waters. Amos 5:24
May justice flow down our local waters, not trash!
April is Earth month, so come celebrate and take action to restore justice to the waters by cleaning up a local waterway, the Muddy Branch Creek. The event is part of Green Up Day on April 13, an event sponsored by the City of Gaithersburg. Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake is happy to be partnering with the Muddy Branch Alliance, a local watershed group "acting together locally" so "that streams, lakes, forests and parks will be teeming with life, safe for families, pets and wildlife to enjoy."
