Why we are involved:

The Watermen's Museum tells the history of the people that lived and worked on the York River and Chesapeake Bay from the Powhatan people and the european settlers, the pirates and colonial mariners, to the modern military and waterfront communities of today. By exploring the past we try to understand the problems that we have developed for ourselves today. The Museum conducts social studoes programs for K-12 and adults, as well as environmental education programs for K-12 and adults to include facilitating programs on Climate Change,Sea Level Rise and Coastal Resiliency Planning. 


We pledge to help facilitate the discussion of how the Chesapeake Bay Region can plan to become more resilient to meet the world we all share.
