Wetlands Work encourages landowners in the Chesapeake Bay watershed to restore wetlands on their property and accelerate the Chesapeake Bay Program’s progress toward its goal to create or reestablish 85,000 acres of wetlands in the region by 2025.
The Chesapeake Bay Program
Since 1983, the Chesapeake Bay Program has led and directed the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay. The Bay Program works with dozens of partners, including federal and state agencies, local governments, non-profit organizations and academic institutions. This partnership model has been recognized and emulated around the world and has served as the basis for landmark cooperative agreements, cutting-edge scientific research and unprecedented goals and deadlines for restoring the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem.
