Environmental Protection and Restoration (EPR)The Environmental Protection and Restoration Department's primary objective is to drive significant improvements in the health of the Chesapeake Bay as measured by CBF's Bay Health Index. Consistent with the CBF strategic plan, this involves developing and recommending priorities for the organization's policy work, engaging our members and implementing restoration elements of the plan. The Program utilizes a combination of strategies to help achieve a reduction in Bay pollution, restoration of critical habitat, and better-managed fisheries. See Schedule O for Continuation (page 50)
CommunicationsThe Communications Department's charge is to market CBF and its policy agenda, educate and engage the public, and mobilize support for organizational priorities and Bay restoration efforts. Communications also manages internal communications and public opinion research. See Schedule O for Continuation (page 52)
Education CBF's Education Department is responsible for leading students, teachers, and adults in hands-on, on-the-water, environmental education experiences about the Bay. Through education programs, our professional educators use innovative teaching methods to engage students in real-world issues and scientific inquiry, exciting and encouraging them to take action to protect our natural resources.
