Water Monitoring Initiative Along Spa Creek!

We have officially started our 2017 water monitoring initiative along Annapolis’ beautiful Spa Creek. This is a continuation of our efforts that began last year, in May of 2016.

The purpose of this initiative is to discover where there are safe swimming levels and where there are problem areas. Along with Spa Creek Conservancy, we have been working to restore the Spa Creek Watershed and this data will help prove that we are making a difference!

Oyster Planting in Baltimore, MD

Oyster Planting in BaltimoreThis past September, 2016, the Chesapeake BaySavers volunteered with the Healthy Harbor Initiative and Chesapeake Bay Foundation in order to build over 100 oyster cages and planted over 60,000 spat-on-shell in Baltimore's Inner Harbor! This large scale oyster planting made this location Baltimore's largest oyster garden.

On Saturday, May 20th we finally planted all of oysters at Fort Carroll where harvesting is STILL illegal – thanks to our efforts to prohibit the DNR from opening up our oyster sanctuaries to harvest this past legislative session. We planted nearly 62,000 oysters that will join other oysters and benthic organisms to filter the Patapsco River, and provide habitat and food for marine life!

2017 LEGISLATIVE VICTORY!

WE DID IT – YOU DID IT!

The BaySavers, along with your support, were able to protect and ultimately SAVE our Bay's vital oyster population!

Commercial interests wanted to open up the Bay's oyster sanctuaries and TAKE the oysters that have been placed there with millions of YOUR taxpayer dollars.

When this was announced, the Chesapeake BaySavers went to work. WE drafted House Bill 924 to stop them. WE obtained the sponsors in the legislature. On YOUR behalf! WE had the necessary meetings to lobby the bill through and it ultimately PASSED! Ensuring the protection of our sanctuaries for another year. It could not have been done without your contributions and support!

YOU SHOULD BE PROUD! Your children and our future generations thank you!

See all of our 2017 legislative accomplishments!


Chesapeake BaySavers has officially been named a Top-Rated Nonprofit of 2016!
