Chesapeake Bay Program

The Chesapeake Bay Program is a regional partnership that leads and directs Chesapeake Bay restoration and protection. Bay Program partners include federal and state agencies, local governments, non-profit organizations and academic institutions. Staff members work at the Bay Program’s Annapolis, Maryland, office and at partner organizations throughout the Bay watershed.

Each Bay Program partner uses its own resources to implement Bay restoration and protection activities. Partners work together through the Bay Program’s goal teams, workgroups and committees to collaborate, share information and set goals to advance Bay science, policy and restoration.

For more information on the program, visit the Chesapeake Bay Program website or contact FWS Chesapeake Bay Coordinator Mike Slattery at or (410) 573-4571.
