Public Tour of Baltimore Restoration Projects

Join the Chesapeake Bay Program in to celebrating the partnership’s 40th anniversary Download

Over the past 40 years, the Chesapeake Bay Program has guided the restoration and conservation of the nation’s largest estuary. The most recent Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement signed in 2014, contains 10 goals and 31 outcomes intended to further restoration of the Bay and its surrounding watershed. The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has supported the Chesapeake Bay Program since 1999 in managing its Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund.
