Our weekly roundup of engaging, educational, and inspirational Bay content to enjoy at home during the age of corona

It’s been another busy week at CBF! In addition to celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with these stories and videos, we’ve moved full steam ahead on important advocacy and litigation initiatives for clean water.

On Tuesday, after the Trump administration repealed the Clean Water Rule, which provided robust protections for wetlands and replaced it with a weaker version, CBF and ShoreRivers announced plans to sue the administration. We will be as relentless as ever as we take our fight to protect the Clean Water Act and the watershed’s wetlands to court. Stay tuned for how you can help.

Also this week, we welcomed Shannon Gority to the team! As CBF’s new Executive Director of Pennsylvania, Shannon will work hard with partners and staff to get Pennsylvania back on track toward meeting its Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint goals.

On Thursday, we again participated in a Congressional briefing, alongside aquaculture partners, advocating for more support of oyster farming efforts—especially in the age of COVID-19. In case you missed it, here our ways you, too, can support aquaculture efforts even from home.

In other news, the baby goslings that had taken up residence on CBF’s Merrill Center osprey platform, took their first flight this week!

Thank you for standing with us in these difficult times, now and always. And please enjoy this week’s Bay stories and resources. Be safe, healthy, and well.

P.S. Don’t forget: Celebrate Earth Week and Arbor Day with us! With a gift of $50 or more, you’ll receive five native tree seedlings to plant in your backyard or community.
