  • This Week in the Watershed

    September 9, 2016

    Pollution is the enemy of clean water. And if we want to leave a legacy of clean water to future generations, we need to take action.

  • Top 5 Facebook Posts of Summer!

    September 8, 2016

    Underwater grasses rebounding, horseshoe crabs crawling, Maryland winning (in Rio that is) . . . it's been quite a summer on CBF's Facebook Page!

  • Slowing the Flow: A Pioneering Parking Lot

    September 7, 2016

    A parking lot isn't usually something to get excited about. But believe it or not, the Ashland Police Department's new lot is pretty innovative when it comes to fighting pollution.

  • Photo of the Week: A Really Nice Backyard

    September 6, 2016

  • This Week in the Watershed

    September 2, 2016

    September 1, 2016

    After decades of restoration efforts, the Chesapeake Bay is finally starting to show promising signs. The oyster population is beginning to rebound.

    August 30, 2016

    This early August sunset photo of the Bay Bridge and the Chesapeake was taken from Hemingway's Restaurant.

  • Labor Day Picnic Recipes We Love (Without the Meat!)

    August 29, 2016

    Here's an idea: What if we were to swap the burger for some healthy and equally delicious (if not more so) meatless meals this Labor Day?

  • Photo of the Week: Dog Days of Chesapeake Summer

    August 26, 2016

    In honor of National Dog Day today, we're celebrating all our amazing four-legged friends who love the Bay and its rivers and streams as much as we do!

  • What's in the Water? Part Two

    August 25, 2016

    This summer, as an intern in the Communications Department at CBF, I helped with a bacteria-monitoring project to educate the public on the water quality in their own backyard rivers and streams and the harmful effect that polluted runoff has on them.
