The Chesapeake Bay is home to thousands of plant and animal species, and the land surrounding it – the Chesapeake Bay Watershed – extends over six states and supports more than 17 million people. Historically rich and economically vital, the watershed is an integral part of our region’s identity. Our actions significantly impact the watershed’s health, and it’s up to each one of us to understand the steps we can take to protect the watershed for many generations to come.
The Chesapeake Bay Watershed is a vital natural resource with a rich, enduring story. And, at Expedition Chesapeake, we’re on a mission to tell that story.

Jeff Corwin, our on-screen host and leader of the expedition, highlights the region’s agricultural, ecological, and environmental impact, and the importance of doing our part to protect and conserve the watershed for future generations.
