What are local projects? They are the core of what the Chesapeake Project does, working within local communities to advocate for and educate our local communities. Becoming a Local Project connects all of us, allows local advocates access to our Social Medias and Website, along with connections to the other projects across the watershed.
At the moment, it is officially just the Southern Anne Arundel Project. However we are actively investigating other local projects and advocates to promote.
Start a Local Project!
All it takes is one person to start a Local Project. It can be an individual, a group of advocates, a town or community. The only requirement is a passion for our collective future living with the Chesapeake Bay.
If you want to take the first steps in starting your local project, email Bryan at email@example.com.
