Since opening the Virginia office in the early 1980s, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation has been leading the efforts to save the Bay in the Old Dominion through science-based environmental policy and advocacy, education, litigation, and restoration.
In this webinar hear about CBF’s recent successes in Virginia, including protecting menhaden, what many consider the Bay’s most important fish, and defending an historic and vulnerable African-American community and its air and water from Atlantic Coast Pipeline threats. You'll also learn more about some of the pathbreaking projects currently engaging CBF’s Virginia team, including
- helping transform some of Richmond’s formerly redlined neighborhoods from heat islands to tree-filled green oases,
- assisting one of the last Black-owned farm operations in Clarke County to adopt effective conservation practices,
- working with Nansemond Indian Nation members to install living shorelines in the Nansemond River,
- and more.
