CBF created the Volunteers as Chesapeake Stewards (VoiCeS) program in 2004 as a way to reach out to local volunteers and their communities and create a deeper understanding of the Bay and the efforts to restore it. VoiCeS is CBF's most in-depth adult education program available to its members and the public.

Participants learn from engaging and thought-provoking speakers about

  • the Bay's biology,
  • how farmers are reducing runoff,
  • the critters that call Northern Virginia streams home and how to protect them,
  • and more.

Attendees will leave knowing how their everyday actions can help restore the Bay and local waterways.

Special presenters include

  • Delegate David Bulova
  • John Page Williams, Senior Naturalist, Chesapeake Bay Foundation
  • Jim McGlone, Urban Forest Conservationist, Virginia Department of Forestry
  • Mike Rolband, President, Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc.
  • Kristina Clarin, Urban Conservation Specialist, Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation District, among others.

Participants are expected to attend at least five of the six classroom sessions, as well as a field trip. The program culminates in a service requirement of 40 hours on a clean-water-related project of your choosing. Successful graduates receive CBF's designation as "Chesapeake Stewards."

Fee: Individual Registration $25 / Couples Registration $40
