Since its formation in 1983, the Chesapeake Bay Program has made significant strides toward restoring and protecting the Bay, its rivers and streams and the lands that surround them.
Over our long history, a series of written agreements and science-based goals have guided our work, helping our partners track changes in the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Chesapeake Bay Program is renowned as a regional, national and international leader in ecosystem science, modeling and restoration partnerships.
From simulating environmental models to monitoring the Bay and its tributaries, our partners help us advance Bay science, policy and restoration.
