The Chesapeake Baysavers is an Annapolis-based environmental organization with a mission to restore the health of the Chesapeake Bay through legislative efforts, community outreach, and hands-on, environmental education programs for youth.
HB 924, SUPPORT: This bill will prohibit any changes from being made to existing oyster sanctuaries prior to the completion of the science-based stock assessment that is to be completed in 2018. The Oyster Advisory Commission is currently considering a draft strawman proposal that would allow opening up of oyster sanctuaries to harvest – we can’t let this happen! Contact your elected officials and tell them to vote in SUPPORT of House Bill 924 today!
This event is a great way to bring people together to enjoy a day of golfing, delicious food, live music and entertainment, as well as a chance to win some awesome prizes – all while supporting our efforts to restore our beloved Chesapeake Bay!
On Monday, October 17, 2016, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, along with Doug Gansler, Benjamin Grumbles, Stephen Lafferty, and other distinguished speakers met in order to confer on how to save the Chesapeake Bay in a University of Baltimore Law Review Symposium.

On Saturday, September 24th 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!

We are so excited to announce that the Chesapeake BaySavers has invested $5,000 to sponsor the Annapolis Maritime Museums ‘Chesapeake Champions’ program for the 2016-2017 school year. The program will be offered to all second-grade students who attend Eastport 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.
Educating our youth on how their everyday actions can help protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay is a crucial step in creating a healthier environment!

This year we have partnered with North County High School to mentor two students in their STEM Community Engagement Program. The purpose of this program is to give these students real world experience through working with local nonprofits on projects that we designed for them catered to their interests.
Our first project for the students is for them to use their computer and design skills to revamp our website so stay tuned for a new look in the next few months!
