Bay region is rich in natural, cultural, historical and recreational
resources and the many stories that go with them. Organizing these
stories in a series of themes that weave together the whole Bay
story and link to the watershed is a key part of the Gateways Network.
Network uses a hierarchy of themes to help organize Bay stories.
All Gateways fit within these themes, providing a way for linking
stories between different sites and giving specific stories a Bay
Network provides technical and financial assistance to enhance interpretation
of Chesapeake Bay stories at designated Gateways.
