Our teacher paddle team represents 6 schools on the Broadneck Peninsula. We're here to connect our students to the Bay Paddle, uniting our school communities in the vital mission to save the bay. Your donation to our team supports Oyster Recovery Partnership and Chesapeake Conservancy, and demonstrates support for our teachers efforts to bring educational programming to our students on our beloved Chesapeake Bay.
This team is made up of 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. 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.
Our fundraising goal is $4000. Any donations over that goal will go to our Riverkeeper team members to offset the expenses associated with participating in the Bay Paddle.
As two organizations passionate about the Bay and serving Veterans, we've decided to team up to fundraise for the 2021 Bay Paddle & raise awareness about our two organizations.
