This intensive multi-week program runs weekday evenings: Thursdays June 6 and 13, Mondays June 17, 24, and July 8, 15, and 22.


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.

From engaging and thought-provoking speakers, participants will learn about

  • the history of the Chesapeake Bay and local waters,
  • landscaping to reduce runoff and beautify your property,
  • the benefits of urban trees,
  • oysters and mussels, our living filters,
  • farm conservation practices,
  • smarter growth strategies for urban areas,
  • wastewater treatment, and
  • how to be an effective clean water advocate.

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

Special presenters include

  • Delegate David Bulova
  • Karen Pallansch, CEO, Alexandria Renew
  • Frank Graziano, Vice President Engineering, Wetland Studies and Solutions, Inc., among others.

Participants are expected to attend at least six of the seven 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
