The Chesapeake Baysavers volunteered at my daughters pre-school in a workshop with 2-5 year olds. They had interactive activities that educated them on the Chesapeake Bay and they LOVED it! We appreciate this foundations efforts to engage the next generation in their fight to save the Bay. They have made a huge positive impact on our community and we thank them for that!

This foundation is truly one of a kind! While it was the dream of one individual to make a difference in the Bay, that dream has grown and is now shared by hundreds in the Baltimore/Annapolis area - and beyond! The BaySavers utilizes the syngergistic goals of fostering education about oysters and the health of the bay and lobbying our state legislators for meaningful reform to create meaningful impact.

Each of the fundraisers, especially the golf tournament, is well attended and always a great time. The founder and the board certainly know how to bring a broad mix of people together for a great cause!

The Chesapeake Baysavers has established itself as an important voice for the Bay through its legislative efforts, oyster restoration projects, and partnerships with environmental youth education programs. Every year, Baysavers works tirelessly to keep the issue of a healthy bay in front of our state representatives and works to bring a non-partisan message that everyone can make a difference in helping this national treasure come back to life. The Bay is at a critical stage in its recovery with a positive turnaround over the past few years. Chesapeake Baysavers is a non-profit that has helped make that progress possible.

One of the best non profits for saving the Bay. All monies go to the effort, not staff salaries! Oyster beds to restore the bay, educational programs for middle school children, intense legislative work to improve the bay and more! Small and mighty Chesapeake BaySavers!
