Mission, Vision, Values


The Back Creek Conservancy improves, conserves, and speaks for Annapolis’s Back Creek and its watershed, to make it a healthier place to live, work, and play in harmony with nature.


By 2025, the Back Creek Conservancy envisions a creek we can swim in without fear of illness; a thriving creek with fish, crabs, aquatic vegetation, and other wildlife; a creek where neighbors, marine professionals, and recreational boaters work together for improved water quality; a creek that is resilient to the impacts of climate change; and a creek that makes us proud to be part of America’s Sailing Capital.
