Welcome to my Chesapeake Bay Foundation Walk the Watershed page. During these unprecedented times, two things remain important to me: maintaining my personal 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!
I am inviting you to join the Barnes/Russell team because I know you walk every day and without you I don't think we will reach the goal by July 1.
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 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 this walk by joining our team.
- $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.
If you want to donate please do it directly. Helping Marvin, Hannah and me virtually walk the watershed is my goal!
