About Us

Waterfowl Chesapeake grew out of the success of the annual Waterfowl Festival, a community-centric event held each fall to celebrate the watefowling heritage and communities of Delmarva.  Created in 2011, Waterfowl Chesapeake builds on the community strength and spirit of our annual Waterfowl Festival and aims to expand our work from a single event to a year-round presence of community and environmental stewardship. Our core values reflect that we:

  • believe community is first in all we do,
  • are passionate about our region’s unique waterfowling heritage and resouces, and
  • that stewardship of our natural and cultural resources must be all inclusive in order to have support Delmarva communities.
