The ACA Funds Marine Debris Initiative at Chesapeake Experience
The Chesapeake Experience is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating on-the-water, hands-on, educational experiences for students,
teachers, and the general public to increase stewardship of the
Chesapeake Bay watershed. A recipient of this year's 2012 Club Fostered Stewardship Grant, Chesapeake Experience is developing a marine debris program that will educate students about the effects of marine debris on the health of wildlife and our waters, and will allow them to collect data on marine debris sources and trends in a kayak camp. They will also upcycle the items collected during cleanup by creating "Recycles Chesapeake Bay Species Art."
The American Canoe Association (ACA) is a member-based 501(c)(3)non profit organization that promotes fun and responsible canoeing, kayaking, rafting and SUP. Founded in 1880, the ACA actively advocates recreational access and stewardship of America’s recreational water trails. For more information and to join, visit www.americancanoe.org.
