Chesapeake Conservancy

Chesapeake Conservancy works to achieve a healthier Chesapeake Bay watershed by connecting people with its wildlife and history; conserving landscapes and rivers; and restoring its natural resources.  

We serve as a catalyst for change, advancing strong public and private partnerships, developing and using new technology, and driving innovation throughout our work.

From our founding, we have embraced the National Park Service’s Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail as an inspiration and framework for our work in the region.
