Mission Statement

CHEARS’ mission is to restore the health of all life in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed through arts, education, research, and action projects organized and implemented by volunteers.


We are a non-profit organization and a tribe of friends and volunteers -environmentalists, natural and social scientists, artists, educators, children, parents, grandparents, and activists interested in learning together and facilitating and enabling others in the areas of ecological stewardship and artistic expression. We have a special focus on the cross-boundary linkages between our homes in urban, suburban and rural areas in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia, and between the cross time linkages looking to the past heritage and future visions for the Chesapeake Bay watershed, and our relationship to the past, current and future earth community worldwide.
