The “Engaged Communities” commitment of the 2014 Chesapeake Bay Agreement clearly focuses on connecting individuals and groups to the Bay through their shared sense of responsibility and action. The Alliance’s Chesapeake Sojourns focus on this commitment by producing meaningful river experiences that enhance the relationship between participants and their local waterways and spur them to action.
To meet this challenge and to insure individuals from all parts of the watershed have an opportunity to participate we offer sojourns to businesses and other groups in a fee-for-service arrangement, as a member trip, and for targeted audiences to highlight a specific issue and diagram a specific action.
Current Sojourns are planned for one to two days and are distributed throughout the watershed. Each trip is designed to highlight that particular river’s beauty while exploring an issue or issues germane to the local waterway.
