More access in the Bay watershed
The National Park Service has released its latest plan for expanding public access to sites along the Chesapeake Bay. According to a press release, the plan “reflects the state of public access to significant streams, rivers, and bays in the entire Chesapeake watershed, including portions of Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Implementing the plan will expand the number of places for people to get to the water by more than 20 percent by 2025.” Boat access was one of the most asked-for items in public meetings. The plan includes a comprehensive list of existing access sites.
