Give a gift of baby oysters or native trees that will help filter our waterways or support CBF's award-winning environmental education program by helping students and teachers learn out on the water. Choose from our many symbolic gifts that protect the Bay and its waters. Your donation to CBF is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
$25—Grow 2,500 Native Oysters
Oysters feed on the algae that robs our waters of oxygen and make them uninhabitable for fish, crabs, and other Bay critters.
$25—Plant Five Native Trees
Trees are crucial to the overall health of the watershed—they slow down polluted ruonoff and soil erosion, and they absorb the nutrients that are the main cause of pollutants to the Bay.
$50—Build a Reef Ball
Reef balls solve some key challenges to oyster restoration by providing a hard surface on which to grow and protection from poaching on sanctuary reefs.
$70—Send a Student on a CBF Field Experience
Students return from our award-winning education programs with a stronger appreciation of the environment and better grasp of the concepts learned in the classroom.
$100—Spread the Word at a Fair or Festival
CBF shares the Save the Bay™ message at 100 public functions annually, ranging from local fairs to national events.
$140—Outdoor Education Kit
Experience is the best teacher. This Outdoor Education Kit provides students and teachers with essential items for a successful learning experience.
$500—Create an Oyster Habitat
Gift an entirely new habitat of 25,000 oysters and five reef balls.
Educators in our five-day professional development courses learn how to inspire students with outdoor teaching experiences that are aligned with their school system's standards.
