It supports our livelihoods, yields delightfully bright flavors, offers recreation and relaxation, provides critical access to transportation and trade, and holds cherished memories for countless maritime enthusiasts.

As an important part of our state’s history and identity, MPT celebrates the bay and highlights its most critical issues during our annual Chesapeake Bay Week. Held every April, this special week features programs that spotlight the heritage and splendors of the bay – as well as efforts to protect its fragile health for generations to come.
