The Chesapeake Bay has the highest concentration of bald eagles east of the Mississippi River. They depend on healthy fish populations and a wide choice of forest trees abutting waterways for breeding and nesting success. As our national symbol, we owe them the debt of attending to these simple needs. It benefits everyone, and the positive effects of these efforts ripple out to help a host of other species. The Bay is ours to care for.
Ensure that Bob and future generations continue to enjoy extraordinary sights and places like these along the Chesapeake. Support the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint—the plan to Save the Bay and its waters!
