2017 Legislative Summit Recap

Our 2017 Environmental Legislative Summit was a huge success!

The summit was widely attended by nonprofits, students, local businesses, environmental professionals and concerned citizens. Our discussion topics ranged from how Maryland plans to protect the Chesapeake Bay in the face of budget cuts, all the way to the public health implications of environmental policy.

Our hope with this Summit is to open new lines of communication between the environmental sector and the legislature. By bringing together government officials and their constituents in a forum for discussion, we strive to create fertile ground for the success of legislation that will help protect, preserve and restore our beloved Chesapeake Bay.

We can't wait to see what this year's legislative session will have in store for Chesapeake Bay policy. Keep an eye open for information regarding our 2018 Environmental Legislative Summit!

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!

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!
