Welcome to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation Walk the Watershed page.
We have taken the pledge to focus on our personal health, the health of the community, and the health of the Chesapeake Bay through Walk the Watershed. Our team will walk, run, bike, swim, and paddle a combined 1,000 miles and raise $1,200 in Bay-saving funds.
I hope you will join our efforts by donating to our page or joining our team! If you join our team, you will help us walk (run, bike, skip, or jump) a combined 1,000 miles and raise vital funding for CBF. Together we will take steps towards clean water, clean air, and sustainable resources for all.
Every dollar we raise goes directly towards CBF’s mission to save the Bay. This funding will support tree plantings, oyster restoration programs, and education efforts throughout the year. Not only will these efforts save the Bay but they will improve the lives of the 18 million people living on the watershed.
CBF is funded mostly by individual donors like you and me. Donations large and small help support CBF's work. 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 our page today and help us meet our fundraising goal and help CBF Save the Bay!
