This ride benefits the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Midshore RIVERKEEPER Conservancy. These two groups play an instrumental role in not only advocating for the health of the Chesapeake Bay (and as a consequence those of us living upstream of it!) but also devote significant time and resources to provide baselines and monitoring of the health of our Bay and river systems.
