    Walk the Watershed

    The Chesapeake Bay Foundation's Walk the Watershed challenges participants to create or join a virtual team and commit to walking, running, biking, swimming, or paddling a combined 200 miles, the approximate length of the Chesapeake Bay.

    Clean the Bay Day has been a staple for Virginia's Chesapeake Bay community since its inception more than 30 years ago. Even though we won't be gathering together as we have done in the past, we hope that our platform for 2021 will allow us to regain that sense of unity we have felt every year on the first Saturday in June.
