CBF acts as a watchdog to elevate good practices for healing our waterways, while being vigilant in opposing projects or proposals that would degrade water quality. Our scientists submit comments to governing bodies regarding fisheries management, wetlands mitigation, stormwater issues, construction and development projects and more. CBF is a well-respected resource on environmental issues that impact the Chesapeake Bay, its rivers, and streams.
There is no greater advocate in Maryland for the Chesapeake Bay than the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. We are fortunate to have their strong voice leading the fight for a healthier Bay and its tributaries. For over 50 years, their efforts to engage and educate Marylanders on the actions they can take to save the Bay has worked to protect the Bay's natural resources, safeguard its wildlife, and ensure clean water for our communities and future generations.
To Hold Accountable
One of CBF's top priorities is to defend and implement the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint. Much of this work is unfolding in Washington, D.C., where CBF and our allies worked hard to stop legislation and regulation that would have dramatically set back efforts to restore the Chesapeake Bay.
Just as important, however, are the local communities struggling to implement their states' plans in innovative and cost-effective ways. Check out our latest legislative session efforts in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
Our collective voices—YOUR voices—are the most powerful tool there is to save the Bay and its rivers and streams. CBF has active advocates in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and we will save the Bay. Join us in our fight for clean water.CBF's advocacy efforts are designed to help and to hold the states and the federal government accountable for staying on the course of restoration.
