Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP)

The mission of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is to enhance the quality of life in our community by protecting and improving Montgomery County's air, water and land in a sustainable way while fostering smart growth, a thriving economy and healthy communities. 

DEP's Watershed Restoration Division is tasked with improving stream health and water quality and restoring the natural ecosystem.  Our photographers have documented two of their programs:  RainScapes and the Tree Program.

The Nature Conservancy (TNC)

A global environmental organization, TNC protects more than 119,000,000 acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers throughout the world.  It is known for purchasing large tracts of land and for taking initiatives to combat climate change and biodiversity loss.

Our photographers have documented the work of TNC in the following areas:

The benefits of forests, especially old-growth forests; how wetlands prevent flooding; the value of wilderness preservation to mankind; the use of wind turbines as a clean energy source; the effects of natural and manmade environmental damage; and the Potomac River watershed in our back yard.

Potomac Riverkeeper Network (PRKN)

The Potomac Riverkeeper Network is dedicated to protecting and restoring the water quality of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers.  It is part of the national Waterkeeper Alliance.    Our photographers have photographed PRKN events in three areas:  water quality monitoring; river cleanups; and RiverPaloozas (guided events on the water).

Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS)

The Anacostia Watershed Society’s mission is to return the Anacostia River to its former state of being swimmable and fishable by 2025. Stormwater runoff is the main contributor to the river’s pollution. AWS works to restore the river by creating habitat, installing rain gardens and other systems to capture and treat stormwater, and by reducing litter. Our photographers have documented the work of volunteers to pick up trash around the watershed.

Sunrise Movement Rockville

Sunrise Movement Rockville is a local hub of the national Sunrise Movement. They are a group of young, nonviolent climate activists who aim to stop climate change and to create good-paying jobs in the process. Sunrise Movement Rockville has held multiple actions to pressure the Montgomery County government and the Montgomery County Board of Education to increase and speed up their efforts to reduce climate change. Focus on Climate has photographed two of these events in Montgomery County.

Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth (UUMFE)

The mission of UUMFE is "To be a wellspring of spiritual and educational grounding and practical support for bold, accountable action for environmental justice, climate justice, and the flourishing of all life."
