Link to Northeast Region, USFWS; map of regionThe Northeast Region's Chesapeake Bay Field Office is distributing copies of "The Chesapeake Bay Field Office: Conserving Our Bay's Fish, Wildlife and Habitats" to members of Congress and conservation partners around the watershed. The document was requested by the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, which asked the field office to identify ways to "increase support for meeting the living resources, habitat restoration and education goals of the Chesapeake Bay Program." The report provides many examples of how Chesapeake Bay Field Office programs are helping meet commitments made in the inter-jurisdictional Chesapeake 2000 Agreement.

The report lays out priorities for future action, including leadership on invasive species policy and management, identification of important habitats for living resources in the bay, assistance to landowners in securing grant funding to restore habitats on their property and expansion of the Schoolyard Habitats Program to serve students and teachers throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
