Something Worth Saving

There is something still worth saving in the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams. That's an important lesson for school children to learn and one of the many lessons taught to thousands of students and teachers every year through CBF's 15 environmental education programs. For most, it's a lesson that resonates, especially when they get to see first-hand all the fish, birds, and other wildlife that live on or near local waterways.
Local high-school student Maria Kellam was so inspired by CBF's Potomac River Environmental Education Program in Washington, D.C., she put together an amazing video that documents how profound these experiences are for urban and suburban students throughout the watershed.
The faces you see in this video are just a few of the thousands of lives your generous support allows CBF to change every year. To view the video, click here.
Adam Wickline, CBF's Potomac River Environmental Education Program Manager explains, "I see these faces every day and, after learning about the challenges plaguing local waterways, their eagerness to be part of the solution never fails to impress and inspire me."
With each life CBF touches, the Bay's future is brighter.
On behalf of the students and teachers, and the Bay and its rivers and streams, thank you for helping us inspire the next generation of Bay lovers, guardians, and supporters. From small to large gifts, every dollar given to support CBF's Bay-saving programs make a difference.
