CBF’s Student Leadership program in Pennsylvania has further
developed my passion for the environment. From lobbying trips
to Smith Island retreats, my experiences with CBF have been
nothing short of extraordinary.
Most Pennsylvanians don’t connect the Chesapeake Bay
with their local rivers and streams. CBF Student Leadership’s Mentors in Agricultural
Conservation program is dedicated to preserving the link between the environment
and agriculture and the Bay and Pennsylvania. The program targets students who are
already interested in agriculture and provides them with the opportunity to explore and
understand the importance of conservation. Showing farmers the effect they have on
the environment and giving them resources to change their practices is working. We all
want the Earth to be healthy. By inspiring young, future agriculturalists, CBF is directly
affecting the sustainability of farms in the future and reinforcing the idea of coexistence
of agriculture and environmental health.
Reaching Across the Watershed
From humble beginnings, CBF has become as far
reaching and inclusive as our 64,000-square-mile
watershed. Our growth
reflects the diverse
coalition of stakeholders
necessary to save the Bay.
And, consistent with our
mission, CBF seeks to
represent the interests
of all our constituencies.
