Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve


With our restoration activities we strive to speed up the recovery of natural systems located on the Reserve. Restoration projects include controlling invasive species, planting natives and managing ecosystems for the recovery of a particular species or habitat type. Partners include experts in the field to volunteers that implement on the ground projects.
