are the core of our organization.
what are they?
Every town and community have a unique story and situation when it comes to adapting to a rising Chesapeake. There is no one size fits all solution for the entire region. This is why we promote and support local projects.
These projects are run by the communities for their communities. Passionate community members use the resources and identity of The Chesapeake Project to make real change in their towns through education, proactive changes, and future plans for resiliency. Working with the Project, they can release case studies of their area, educate locals, propose possible adaptations or even new policies.
The map on this page shows where we have local projects and/or have completed a zip code study.
