Welcome to my Chesapeake Bay Foundation Walk the Watershed page. During these unprecedented times, two things remain important to me: supporting the CBF mission to save the Bay and working to make myself and our communities healthier. 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. With EPA restrictions being lapsed, it is now more important than ever to support our local and regional Chesapeake stewards to save the Bay. Small and simple actions like walking the watershed or donating to this cause can have huge positive impacts if we collaborate.
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 or join my team today and help me meet my fundraising goal and help CBF Save the Bay!
If you are unable to donate or walk for the watershed at this time (times are definitely different right now) please have a look at this CBF page to find other ways you can help Save the Bay from buying local groceries to conserving energy. We're all in this together! https://www.cbf.org/join-us/more-things-you-can-do/
Thank you from the bottom of my unabashed tree hugging heart,
