Fones Cliffs

Fones Cliffs provides important habitat for one of the largest concentration of eagles on the East Coast. For this reason, and its importance to other migratory bird species, Fones Cliffs is part of a globally significant Important Bird Area, designated by the Audubon Society. Fones Cliffs is an evocative landscape, offering the public a rare glimpse into the past. The white cliffs, rich heritage, and soaring eagles make this a very special and unique place in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Mallows Bay - Potomac River

Mallows Bay on the Potomac River, just 30 miles south of Washington, D.C., is home to the largest visible collection of historic shipwrecks in the Western Hemisphere. Nature has reclaimed what began as a junkyard in the Bay. The area has since evolved into a thriving ecosystem that is full of wildlife.

Middle Chesapeake Sentinel Landscape

The Nanticoke River watershed is regionally and nationally significant for its biodiversity.  The beautiful river is home to hundreds of rare, threatened, and endangered species, including globally rare plant species and unique plant communities. This beautiful river has its own Important Bird Area and is a large component of the internationally recognized Chesapeake Bay Estuarine RAMSAR Site.  The irreplaceable species that live there and the habitats they depend upon are threatened by fragmentation, development and climate change.
