The Chesapeake Bay Foundation opened its first office in Annapolis, Maryland's state capital, in 1967. Since then, we have been leading the efforts to Save the Bay in the Old Line State through environmental advocacy, education, science, policy, litigation, and restoration. Today, CBF boasts offices in Annapolis and Easton, and six outdoor environmental education programs across the state. Our efforts are focused on ensuring Maryland meets its 2025 Bay cleanup goals to reduce pollution from sewage treatment plants, farms, and urban and suburban stormwater runoff.

Maryland is at a key point in its work to meet its 2025 pollution-reduction goals.
