Why the Bay?
The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States and one of the largest in the world. Its watershed—the land that drains into the Bay or into the rivers, creeks or streams connected to it—is home to more than 17 million people and 2,700 species of animals, all of which depend on a healthy Bay for survival.
Next week, we’ll be highlighting the many amazing things about the Bay, including its history and keystone species.
