From Waterfront Partnership's Healthy Harbor webpage:
In less than ten years Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore envisions a
truly recreational Harbor with green edges and running paths; trash-free
open waters for boating, fishing, and swimming; shoreline marsh that
shelters crabs and herons; and a Harbor teeming with fish that are safe
for human consumption. The Harbor should be an overall centerpiece of
city pride, and a resource for citizens and tourists alike.
Securing clean waters for the Harbor also means a future of cleaner,
greener neighborhoods throughout the city, where children can splash and
play in local streams without trash hazards or noxious odors. The value
to Baltimore and its citizens is incalculable.
The Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore is a coalition of businesses,
nonprofit organizations, city agencies, and citizens. The combined
energy and resources among our partners is bringing new focus to the
restoration potential of the Harbor and the streams that feed it.

From Living Classrooms webpage:
Our Mission: Living Classrooms Foundation strengthens communities and
inspires young people to achieve their potential through hands-on
education and job training, using urban, natural, and maritime resources
as "living classrooms."
Living Classrooms Foundation is a Baltimore-Washington based non-profit
educational organization with a distinctive competency in experiential
learning*literally learning by direct experience, or what we call
"learning by doing." We apply our skill in three program areas:
Educating students through our own charter school, through after-school
and supplemental education programs, and through environmental
experiences, with special emphasis on serving students who live in
Eliminating barriers to success for young adults and families through
community development, workforce preparation, and life skills training
Educating the general public, and students in particular, about the
significance of the region's maritime heritage and its role in shaping
who we are as a community and nation
While each of our program areas is distinct, in combination they create
a powerful synergy. Our maritime heritage programs create opportunities
for employment training. Our education programs use our environmental
and maritime resources as living learning laboratories. Our
employability programs create stronger communities that are better
prepared to exercise environmental stewardship.
