The Trust is a nonprofit grant-making organization dedicated to improving the watersheds of the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland Coastal Bays, and Youghiogheny River. Created in 1985 by the Maryland General Assembly, its goal is to increase stewardship through grant programs, special initiatives, and partnerships that support K-12 environmental education, on-the ground watershed restoration, community engagement, and the underlying science of these three realms. Through its grants, the Trust engages hundreds of thousands of students and volunteers in projects that have a measurable impact on the natural resources of the region. Grantees include schools, local governments, community groups, faith-based groups, watershed organizations, and other not-for-profit entities.
