In 2016, the Chesapeake Bay Commission championed the notion of designating the second week of June as Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week. Legislation establishing the special week was enacted in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. It encourages us all to celebrate the Chesapeake Bay with events, activities, and educational programs designed to raise awareness of the importance of this national treasure.
Here a just a few ways you can join in the celebration:
- Tour de Belt, Pennsylvania
- Festival of the River, Virginia
- Bernie Fowler’s Patuxent River Wade-In, Maryland
