Welcome to my Chesapeake Bay Foundation Walk the Watershed page. My team, the Bay Avengers, will walk the length of the Chesapeake Bay watershed over the coming weeks.
Two things remain important to me: our 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. Their mission is simple, yet so important: Save the Bay. They work to improve the wellbeing of the 20 million people and 3,000 species of plants and animals throughout the watershed. They do this through restoration, education, and advocacy for the Chesapeake Bay.
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.
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!
