Welcome to my Chesapeake Bay Foundation Walk the Watershed page. During these unprecedented times, I want to focus on what is important to me: my family, keeping healthy and exercising, spending time in nature, and supporting the CBF mission to save the Bay. This time of quarantine has cemented in my mind that these are the things that really matter! I pledge to get outside, walk the watershed, and spread the Save the Bay message every step of the way!
CBF's mission to Save the Bay is of the utmost importance to me. I have worked for CBF since 1993 and have not only found a place I love and call home, but I found my "village" here. My Tribe! Friends who share my passion for family, nature and the Bay! I also raised my children on the Bay. They now love nature and being outdoors and I am proud that they will carry that passion for the Bay and the environment onto future generations. 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!
