Since opening the Virginia office in the early 1980s, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation has been leading the efforts to Save the Bay in the Old Dominion through environmental advocacy, education, science, policy, litigation, and restoration. Today, CBF boasts offices in Richmond and Virginia Beach, field staff in Charlottesville, oyster restoration facilities in Gloucester and Virginia Beach, and six outdoor environmental education programs across the state.
