The Chesapeake Conservancy envisions a healthier Chesapeake Bay watershed where fish and wildlife thrive, and everyone enjoys healthy waters and abundant forests, wetlands, shorelines, and open spaces; as immortalized in Captain John Smith's voyage of exploration, a place of natural wonder, rich in cultural traditions, treasured and conserved for all.
The Chesapeake Conservancy's mission is to strengthen the connection between people and the watershed, conserve the landscapes and special places that sustain the Chesapeake's unique natural and cultural resources, and restore landscapes, rivers, and habitats in the Chesapeake Bay region.
The Chesapeake Conservancy worked with Richmond-based Terrain360 to map more than 92 miles of 360-degree imaging of the Patapsco River to create interactive views of this beautiful river along the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.
The Chesapeake Conservancy today released a tour of the Rappahannock River, allowing viewers to experience one of the Chesapeake’s most pristine rivers, including breathtaking 360-degree images of Fones Cliffs, from their computer, smart phone, or tablet.
