Welcome to my Walk the Watershed page!
During these unprecedented times, one thing that has been reaffirmed for me is the true intrinsic value of nature.
Our family has used nature as a primary coping tool during these tough times. We look forward to our bike rides, our nature walks, time spent in the woods and just in our own backyard. Nature allows us to relax, reset, refocus. Nature provides us with a space to move our bodies and burn-up that restless energy. Nature provides us with fresh air that helps de-cloud our thoughts and vitamin D to recharge our tanks. Nature provides us with a backdrop for endless memories.
Nature provides us with all of this and doesn’t ask for anything in return. Because of this intrinsic value, we must all step-up and be stewards for nature and take care of its resources. I take that responsibility as a steward of nature very seriously and have spent the better portion of my adult life working to save our local natural resource, the Chesapeake Bay.
Over the next few weeks, I hope to raise awareness and vital funding for CBF and our mission to save the Bay. We 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 my team. We plan to Walk it Out, and have fun while doing it!
Every gift makes a difference!
