The Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail works through a growing number of partnerships with museums, parks, wildlife refuges, water and land trails, and other places that connect people to authentic Chesapeake Bay experiences. These special places rely on volunteer help to maintain and restore the natural, cultural, and recreational resources that characterize the Bay.

Learn about the diversity of places that are part of the Chesapeake Bay Gateways and Watertrails Network of trail partners. You’ll find links to sites throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed where your help is needed.
