Historical Note

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation was organized as a non-profit organization for the purpose of preserving the ecological well0being of the Bay by combating pollution and conserving its natural resources. The Foundation was composed of a Board of Trustees and an Executive Director, with staff added as the need arose. Jess Malcolm was appointed the first Executive Director in 1967; he was succeeded by Arthur Sherwood in 1971.

The Foundation has been active not only in publicizing and informing the citizenry of important issues related to the environment of the Bay, but also in seeing that appropriate action was taken to eliminate threats to or to reduce undesired effects on this environment. Some of the major issues in which the Foundation has intervened include the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, the Piney Point Oil Refinery, the development of Goodwin Islands, and the Kent County Gravel Operations. The Foundation has also participated in a number of programs such as the Annapolis Harbor Study, the National Area Register, etc. Additionally, the foundation published informative and educational reports, participated in panel discussions and speaking engagements at civic and social meetings, testified at state and Congressional hearings, as well as sponsoring such activities as Save the Bay month, the Swan Adoption Program, and ecological cruises for students.
