H2O is life. The rest is just science.
For over 30 years Heal the Bay has used empirical science to protect the health of our Bay. Now science is under attack.
The White House recently proposed debilitating budget and workforce cuts for science-based environmental and public health programs starting this October. Let’s stand for science to protect our clean and thriving oceans and waterways. Put on your Heal the Bay shirt and join us at the March for Science.
