The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and its members, more than
strong, are the strongest and most effective voice that exists for protecting and restoring the Bay and its rivers and stream.
We work at local, state, and federal levels for effective laws and regulations that will reduce pollution, restore vital natural systems like oyster reefs, forests, and wetlands, and encourage smart growth in our communities.
Visit our Action Center for tools, resources, and stories to help you become a better advocate for the Bay.
