With over 18 million people living in the Chesapeake Bay watershed it’s hard to imagine that one person can make a difference.
However, everyone has an impact on the health of the watershed. When we dispose of our trash properly, the water will be clean and the animals that live in and around the bay will be healthy. Hover over the yellow blinking dots under Spencer to see how he's helping to make a difference!
Do you see what happens when litter is carelessly thrown on the ground? Rain carries the litter into nearby storm drains. The litter then travels to the Chesapeake Bay, hurting animals and the environment!

Below are the Clean and Beautiful Activities for Grades 3-5. Each activity is worth points! Some activities are graded automatically for correctness and some are not. When you submit an activity, a popup will show with either the points you gained or a button to click that will award you points after completing the activity. The page may need refreshed to show points earned.
All activities can be completed multiple times, but can only collect points once per day. You must be registered and logged in to gain and track points! To track your points, click "My Profile". This will show your overall total points and a breakdown of how they were earned!
Good luck, make Spencer proud!
