This project promotes Chesapeake Bay stewardship and strengthens the connection of four Virginia state park Gateways to the developing Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail. The project will develop new interpretive signage comparing and contrasting the ecological history of the Chesapeake Bay and river watersheds. The project will also provide teacher training and field- based educational experiences for students, as well as public "paddlefests" to promote safe, responsible boating access to the Bay.

Amount Funded: $51,720.00

Start Date: 10/03/2007
