Casting for Recovery: Casting for Recovery was founded on the principles

that the natural world is a healing force and that cancer survivors deserve one weekend — free of charge and free of the stresses from medical treatment, home, or workplace — to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings within an intimate, safe, and nurturing structure.  Casting for Recovery • P.O.

Maryland League of Conservation Voters:  The Maryland LCV also advocates in the halls of the State House in Annapolis, working with our colleagues in the environmental community we push for sound conservation laws such as the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Act of 2009, Stormwater Management Act of 2007, Clean Cars Act of 2007, Healthy Air Act of 2006, and the Chesapeake Bay Restoration Act of 2005 to name but a few. Additionally, we helped ensure that environmental values are reflected in the state's budget priorities and have saved millions of dollars of funding for land conservation through Program Open Space. We work to educate and mobilize the public to lobby for sound conservation policies and funding.
