Chesapeake Bay Trust working with communities to protect the bay!

The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in North America and has over 150 rivers and streams running into it.  Protecting the Chesapeake Bay has become an extremely important environmental project since the early 1990’s. Many environmental factors effect the bay.  These tributaries can be effected by local community storm water, pollution, etc. and then end up in the bay.  Thankfully, the bay is becoming healthier due to the above mentioned projects.

Now the Chesapeake Bay Trust is parterning with other agencies to work with localities to fund the Chesapeake Bay Green Streets-Green Jobs-Green Towns Grant Program.  The program will continue working to  save the Bay in partnership with surrounding localities.  This grant will fund localities to create green space, stormwater management and lessen runoff that ends up in the bay.  May these projects continue to work toward bringing the bay back to a healthy and viable estuary.

“The goal of the grants is to help communities develop and implement plans that reduce stormwater runoff, increase the number and amount of green spaces in urban areas, improve the health of local streams and the Chesapeake Bay, create “green jobs,” and enhance livability in cities and communities. Community-led restoration efforts support healthy neighborhoods, local jobs, and increased capacity to implement green infrastructure that supports clean water goals.”
