Welcome to our Chesapeake Bay Foundation Clean the Bay Day page.
Every day, each of us can do our part to make the Chesapeake even more beautiful by preventing and picking up litter. Clean the Bay Day—a long-standing Virginia tradition 33 years in the making—inspires us to do just that. This annual event also introduces participants to some of the greater, unseen problems the Bay watershed faces such as degraded habitat, polluted runoff, and nitrogen and phosphorus pollution. Clean the Bay Day shows us that we all can be environmental stewards of our waters.
One of the most rewarding aspects of Clean the Bay Day is the ability to make a difference together with the people we love. Although we won't be physically together this year due to the pandemic, we still can make a difference together. We hope you will join our efforts by donating or joining our team! Together we will take steps toward clean water, clean air, and sustainable resources for all.
By participating in Clean the Bay Day 2021, our team has taken the pledge to get outside, pick up litter, and work to improve the wellbeing of the 18 million people and 3,000 species of plants and animals that call the watershed home.
Founded in 1967, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) conservation organization dedicated to saving a national treasure—the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
