Abstract The Chesapeake Bay region is rapidly urbanizing. More than eleven million people live in metropolitan areas close to the Bay, including significant diverse communities and new immigrants. Fewer people interact daily with the waters, forests, and open lands of the region. Despite this trendor perhaps because of it--regional residents increasingly seek opportunities to reconnect with the outdoors. State, federal, and local governments are guardians of these opportunities, providing public sites where everyone can enjoy the natural and cultural bounty of the Chesapeake Bay watershed--relaxing, learning, and reflecting in direct interaction with the regions treasured outdoors. Some sites provide direct access to the Bay and its rivers for boating and swimming. Others provide spots where visitors without watercraft can fish, observe wildlife, walk trails, and camp along the waters edge.
