Reminder: Chesapeake Conservancy Champions Of The Chesapeake Bay Nominations Due Sept. 26

The Chesapeake Conservancy is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Champions Of The Chesapeake Bay Awards through September 26.

Now more than ever, we need a hero. And not just any hero – we need a Champion of the Chesapeake.

Everyday, people are making a measurable difference in their own backyard.

There are four award categories--

-- Everyday Hero: Someone who incorporates conservation into their everyday lives

-- Lifetime Champion: An individual who has dedicated their life to conservation

-- Next Generation: A rising young conservation champion

-- Small Business: A local business that has made steps to be eco-friendly for the Chesapeake
