We are grateful for your interest and support of this event.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has, in Executive Order 55, directed all Virginians to stay home through June 10 except in extremely limited circumstances. To comply with this Order and do our part to keep Virginians safe, we are canceling this year's Clean the Bay Day.
We will be hosting the 32nd Annual Clean the Bay Day in June of 2021 and look forward to your participation. We thank all partners and potential partners and look forward to collaborating with you next year.
In the meantime, we encourage you to stay tuned as we will soon be announcing some other innovative ways you can help us improve the water quality of our treasured Chesapeake Bay!
Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay inside!
While we pull some pretty bad stuff out of our waterways each year, we always encourage our volunteers to "go beyond litter" and address the less visible factors and behaviors that threaten the health the Bay. Check out more ideas for what you can do every day to help Save the Bay.
While litter is easily prevented and can be picked up by anyone on any given morning, tackling the major unseen threats to the Bay watershed, like degrading habitat, polluted runoff, and nutrient pollution, require broad and focused support. Clean the Bay Day often performs as a gateway program through which children and adults alike embrace environmental stewardship of their waterways. We hope you will help us in our mission to Save the Bay by learning more about the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint, our best and perhaps only chance to finally restore and protect the Bay and her rivers and streams.
Clean the Bay Day is a model for cooperation: The program is built on lasting relationships between dozens of cities and counties, non-profits, military installations, small businesses, and large corporations. On Clean the Bay Day, we all come together with families, individuals, church groups, and elected officials from local, state and federal levels for a common cause: clean water.
Clean the Bay Day is predicated on strong cooperation and important, lasting relationships among CBF and dozens of partners, including municipalities, non-profits, the U.S. military, businesses, and corporate sponsors. We are always welcoming new partners and sponsors to share the limelight with us! If you'd like to know more, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 757-644-4122.
