Over the last 50 years, billions have been invested to restore the Bay, and the world is watching to see how it responds.

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.
