Hey! Welcome to my Chesapeake Bay Foundation Walk the Watershed page. During these unprecedented times, two things remain important to me: maintaining my personal health and supporting CBF's mission to save the Bay. I pledge to get outside, walk the length of the watershed (roughly 200 miles), and spread the Save the Bay message every step of the way!
Over the next few weeks, I hope to raise awareness and vital funding for CBF and their mission. They work to improve the well-being of the 18 million people and 3,000 species of plants and animals throughout the watershed.
CBF is funded mostly by individual donors like you and me. Donations large and small help support CBF's on-the-water field experiences for students and teachers, tree plantings, oyster restoration, advocacy for stronger laws protecting the Bay, and litigation against polluters when necessary.
I hope you will support these efforts by donating to my page or by taking on the challenge to walk 200 miles. (If you decide to walk, make sure to adhere to Covid-19 social distancing guidelines!)
Every gift makes a difference!
- $25 can plant five native trees as a streamside buffer.
- $50 can grow 5,000 native oysters.
- $140 can send two students for a day of learning in and around the Bay.
- $500 can build 10 reef balls which are effective and safe artificial homes for oysters.
Please donate on my page today and help me meet my fundraising goal and help CBF Save the Bay!
(Full disclosure: I work for the organization and can vouch that the people who work here are some of the most passionate and hard-working people that I know.)
