Stay up to date with the Chesapeake BaySavers!

Real Change for the Bay !!

That is what we do and why you need to support us by playing in our golf tournament on May 11, 2018 - two weeks from now!!

We are different from other environmental organizations. We go to the legislature on YOUR behalf and we get results! The 2018 legislative session just ended are here are just a few of our accomplishments:

  • We worked with legislators and carved out a $150,000.00 whistleblower fund to be used to catch the lawbreakers who are stealing your taxpayer money that is supposed to go toward Bay cleanup. Several years ago, the BaySavers put up a $10.000.00 reward which resulted in catching and sending to jail the largest seafood theft ring ever working the Chesapeake Bay ! Our work this session builds on our prior great success in this area.
  • We saved the oyster aquaculture industry in Maryland! Virginia has a thriving oyster aquaculture industry which puts millions of oysters in their part of the bay. When adverse interests put in House Bill 1426 which would effectively shut down the oyster aquaculture efforts in Maryland - we stepped up and saved the day. That will result in millions of oysters cleaning up Maryland waters.

We had many more accomplishments!! Go to the legislative initiatives section of our site and check out our results over the years.

We need your help!! Be a BaySaver and support us register for the golf tournament below.

Expansion of the Chesapeake Champions Program

Chesapeake BaySavers is proud to announce that we have continued our partnership with Annapolis Maritime Museum for a second year in a row by expanding to two schools in the Annapolis Area!

The Chesapeake Champions Program will be offered to second grade students attending Eastport Elementary School and, as of 2017, Hillsmere Elementary School. Through environmental education and interactive activities, the program will educate students about their local environment and connection to it, with a focus on the Chesapeake Bay.


Water Monitoring Initiative Along Spa Creek!

With our second season of water monitoring coming to an end, we are excited to announce that we will be EXPANDING our initiative in the 2018 season! We plan to add a minimum of two new testing sites along Spa Creek, as well as extend our testing to get a more in-depth look at what is in our water.

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!

Saving Our Sanctuaries

The Chesapeake BaySavers work with groups like the Spa Creek Conservancy, Capital SUP, and others to maintain fleets of oyster cages in the Chesapeake Watershed.

We maintain oysters in cages off of docks until they grow large enough to survive on their own in sanctuaries! We work with volunteers from in and around Annapolis to maintain the cages and eventually plant on sanctuaries in the Bay. We are always in need of volunteers to help with this initiative, if you are interested then please reach out to us at baysavers@gmail.com!
