Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week


The third annual Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week takes place from June 2-10. It's a time that prompts us to think on our connections to this vast watershed—the impacts we have on it's health and beauty and that it has on our economy and quality of life.

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.
