Following the call of our health officials and Governors to practice social distancing during the global pandemic, our Find Your Chesapeake Trips and Tips newsletter now offers virtual and other experiences that help you continue to explore the Chesapeake.
United for a Chesapeake National Recreation Area
Imagine a 21st-century park—a collection of parks in the Chesapeake Bay that bring national and international attention to the Bay’s significant natural, cultural, historical, and recreational resources. These parks would become the Chesapeake National Recreation Area and tell a common narrative about the nation’s largest estuary and one of the world’s largest environmental restoration efforts.
While nothing beats the experience of seeing the beauty of the Chesapeake firsthand, we’ve created virtual river tours along the trail, similar to Google Street View, so that you can explore the Chesapeake.
Check out our three wildlife webcams featuring Osprey, Peregrine Falcons, and Great Blue Heron! Thanks to our partners at Explore.org and the cam property owners, we are proud to bring you these live streams of some of Chesapeake's most iconic species!
Learn about our data-driven campaign to protect 30% of the Chesapeake's lands by 2030 as some of the world’s leading scientists are calling for dramatic increases in conservation efforts and habitat protection at a global scale.
