The Time Is Now!

CBF President Will Baker spoke to environmental advocates the Maryland Environmental Legislative Summit about why protecting EPA's Chesapeake Bay pollution limits during the current General Assembly session is critical. Watch the video above to hear what he had to say.

The decline of the Bay has cost our region billions of dollars in lost jobs, revenue, and resources and threatens to be a continuing drag on local and state economies for years to come. To find out more about the economic impact of the Bay to the region, see the following CBF reports:
