Student Wave

CBF Student Wave is an online resource hub for action projects and ideas for students looking to get involved in saving the Bay.

From 2013-2015, Student Wave engaged a network of hundreds of students across the watershed who connected with CBF, many of them taking actions in ways both small and large, be it as simple as turning off faucets while brushing teeth, all the way to restoring oysters and planting trees. Their projects and ideas are available here for all high school students looking for ways to contribute to cleaning up the Chesapeake.
