Holiday Giving: There's Still Time!


Are you stumped on what to get some of your hard-to-shop-for friends and family this holiday season? Well look no further...we've got some great ideas that don't require long lines at the mall or shipping, and they help save the Bay! What more could you want!

  1. Browse our 2012 Holiday Catalog.
    From growing 2,500 native oysters or planting five trees, to sending one student on an award-winning CBF field experience, purchasing a gift from our catalog is the best way to give something meaningful to your friends and family this holiday season while also helping to save the Bay.

  2. Give a gift that lasts all year.
    Give someone special a membership to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. With it, they'll receive a subscription to our magazine and discounts to the store, all while supporting our critical work defending the Bay.
