The Chesapeake Bay Trust was created as a non-
profit organization by the General Assembly in 1985
(Chapter 789, Acts of 1985). The Trust's mandate is
to promote public awareness and participation in
restoring and protecting the water quality and the
aquatic and land resources of Chesapeake Bay.
To accomplish its mission, the Trust seeks contri-
butions from the business community and private
citizens and distributes that financial support to
groups undertaking projects to help the Bay. Grant
recipients are nonprofit organizations, civic and com-
munity groups, schools, and local public agencies that
have conducted stream cleanups, tree and marsh grass
planrings, erosion control projects, water quality stud-
ies, and habitat restorations. The Trust also has sup-
ported enhancement of environmental education
centers and development of educational materials to
inform people of all ages about the Bay.
