Welcome to my Chesapeake Bay Foundation Walk the Watershed page. During these unprecedented times, I pledge to get outside, walk the watershed, spread the Save the Bay message every step of the way - and get into shape at the same time!
Did you know the Chesapeake Bay is the LARGEST freshwater estuary in North America? Did you know that the Bay watershed covers 6 states and over 64,000 square miles?
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 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 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!

Enjoying Mother Nature
This quarantine has really forced me to get out and walk more than ever - and when I saw this fundraiser opportunity coming along, I couldn't resist. It's just more motivation for our family to get out more and enjoy the scenery together - and what a beautiful time of year when everything is blooming! I hope you all get out too and enjoy the fresh air! Thank you for your support!
