Become a Partner for Healthy Waters.
The Chesapeake Fund — an innovative partnership of Forest Trends, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and the World Resources Institute — works to reduce the amount of nitrogen flowing into our local streams and rivers.
Why nitrogen? Science tells us that excess nitrogen is the Chesapeake Bay's biggest polluter. It creates the growing "dead zones" that are choking life in the Bay. Reducing nitrogen pollution is the surest way to improve the health of the Bay.
Through the Chesapeake Fund, regional businesses and organizations can become Partners for Healthy Waters, and individuals and families can offset their impact on our watershed. Together, we can restore the Bay.
