From public meetings and adult education classes to numerous hands-on volunteer activities, CBF engages residents and teaches them ways to protect the Chesapeake Bay and its many tributaries. But it doesn't stop there. CBF is also an active partner in local restoration efforts spearheaded by community organizations throughout the watershed.
CBF is also active in agricultural communities, helping scores of farmers find funding and implement conservation practices that have dramatically reduced pollution running off their land.
