Waterkeepers from across the Chesapeake region, including the Choptank, Miles-Wye, Sassafras and Chester Riverkeepers from ShoreRivers, the James Riverkeeper, and the South, West and Rhode Riverkeeper, have teamed up to participate in the Bay Paddle, a 8 day, 215 mile staged paddle. The team also includes staff from Waterkeepers Chesapeake, and other Riverkeeper staff and friends. Organized by Waterkeepers Chesapeake, we are paddling for the health and restoration of our local rivers that flow into the Chesapeake Bay. Our oyster and mussel recovery projects in our rivers are helping restore ecosystems and clean the water. Follow our Bay Paddle journey on social media at #WaterkeepersBayPaddle.
