Rock the Boat and Support the Chesapeake Bay TONIGHT!
Published October 17, 2012
Join our staff and volunteers on the USS Constellation tonight from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM for our 8th annual "Rock the Boat" fundraiser, supporting our Chesapeake Bay Initiative (CBI)!
the USS Constellation
With a $10 donation, guests are welcome on board to enjoy free tours, live music from local band Wolve, and great, sustainable food from local restaurants. Beer, wine, and soda will be available for purchase. Guests will also receive a glow in the dark mug with their donation. All proceeds support preservation and restoration efforts in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
Tonight's donations will help our CBI team purchase much-needed field equipment for upcoming habitat restoration projects! This event will be a great kick-off for our team who will be doing a week long tree planting at Indian Head next week. Every year, our staff and volunteers plant a variety of Chesapeake Bay native wetland grasses, trees, and shrubs along the water’s edge to help stabilize the area, reduce the potential for erosion, and protect existing land while providing habitat for many animal species.
These funds will also help support a second habitat restoration project in March, stay tuned for details on how you can get involved!
This is a family-friendly event and all are welcome! No RSVP required; just make your $10 donation at the entrance to the ship. Come out and rock the boat for conservation!
