About This Saving Land

The 64,000-square-mile Chesapeake Bay Watershed — America’s largest, and the world’s third largest — is in the midst of an epic, unprecedented effort to reverse the impacts of pollution and restore healthier water quality to the region’s more than 100,000 rivers and streams and to the bay itself. A key factor in that effort is land: land management, land use, land cover.
