Past President Will Baker

Michael Busada

Will Baker began his career with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) as an intern in 1976, a few weeks after graduating from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. He served as President from 1982 to 2021, leading the largest nonprofit conservation organization dedicated solely to preserving, protecting, and restoring the Chesapeake Bay. His opinion pieces have been published in all major regional newspapers and the New York Times, and he has been repeatedly interviewed on all major television and radio networks.

Under his leadership, CBF received numerous awards, including the nation's highest environmental honor—the 1992 Presidential Medal for Environmental Excellence—in recognition of its environmental education program.
