Impact of Our Work

Our vision is that the Chesapeake Bay and local watersheds are healthy and safe, our waters are fishable and swimmable, local communities benefit from these healthy resources, and everyone participates in restoring and protecting our natural resource treasures. The Trust works with many funding partners to collaboratively support natural resource projects. Thank you to our grantees; our many federal, state, local, corporate, and foundation partners; and our donors, who enable us to expand our reach and make these projects possible.
