Founded in 1967, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation is the largest independent conservation organization dedicated solely to saving the Bay. Serving as a watchdog, CBF fights for effective, science-based solutions to the pollution degrading the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams. The foundation’s motto, “Save the Bay,” is a regional rallying cry for pollution reduction throughout the Chesapeake’s six-state, 64,000-square-mile watershed, which is home to more than 17 million people and 3,000 species of plants and animals.

From freshwater mussels to microplastics, from trees in urban environments to dolphins in the Bay—there’s always something new to explore and learn about in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. CBF experts bring exciting Bay topics directly to you through their recorded webinars.
