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."

This initiative is especially exciting to the ACA because of our focus on marine debris. Find out what the ACA is doing to protect our oceans and how you can become a part of our Paddle Green Program.
