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 the CBF mission to save the Bay. I pledge to get outside, walk the watershed, 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 to save the Bay. They work to improve the wellbeing 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 joining our team.
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!

Walk the Watershed
Students and staff at Baltimore Lab School have been walking the watershed together yet separately from locations all over the Chesapeake Bay Watershed since May 20, 2020.
We have walked a total of 311 miles and counting.

I have had the pleasure of conducting an Outdoor Education Nature Study with my Baltimore Lab School students through a google classroom during this period of e-learning.
We began with animals, starting with our pets! What better way to start a nature study!
Students are recording observations, and asking questions. But best of all they are outside walking the watershed while they do it!
This has been an opportunity to cultivate in the children a love of the beautiful, through the perception of color, form and music to see whatever catches his/her/zir attention.
