The Chesapeake Bay Foundation provides many opportunities for parents and children to learn about the Bay together. Whether you live in New York state, Virginia Beach, or anywhere in between, you and your children can take an active role in saving the Bay.
The options range from organized volunteer events across the watershed to self-initiated project guides that take you step-by-step through your own restoration project.
Here are a few family-oriented experiences worth pursuing.

Eat local to save the Bay. Buying directly from local farmers keeps them in business, protects their land with regenerative agriculture, and that means a healthier and cleaner Chesapeake watershed. Visit the Buy Fresh Buy Local Chesapeake site to find local food in Maryland, Buy Fresh Buy Local Pennsylvania, and Buy Fresh Buy Local Virginia. Find other chapters in the watershed at buyfreshbuylocal.org.
