From our founding, we have supported the 约翰史密斯船长切萨皮克国家历史步道

十大赌博正规老平台 supports work beyond what the National Park Service could accomplish on its own, 包括:改善公共访问, 支持土地保育, 进行文化研究和环境分析, and providing outreach that enrich visitors’ experiences and create a sustainable future for the Chesapeake Bay watershed.


十大赌博正规老平台 is proud to support trail development for the 约翰史密斯船长切萨皮克国家历史步道 (Chesapeake Trail). The trail commemorates Captain Smith’s exploration of the Bay in 1607 through 1609, 也是美国第一条全水国家历史步道. 它提供了一个重要的保护, 娱乐和教育资源延伸超过3,穿越了切萨皮克大部分大河. In addition to providing needed recreational access to the Chesapeake and its rivers, 这条小径为我们的大型景观保护工作提供了一个框架, 至关重要的庆祝活动, 保护和修复海湾. Just as the Appalachian National Scenic Trail provided a framework for large landscape conservation since 1920, 切萨皮克小道也是如此.

The 约翰史密斯船长切萨皮克国家历史步道 是基于探险家的地图和文字记录吗. The trail, 由国家公园管理局管理, 与16个国家野生动物保护区相连, 12个国家公园, 以及其他三条国家步道. 它为旅游业提供了机会, 环境及文化教育, conservation, and recreation. The multi-dimensional nature of the Chesapeake Trail makes it a model for a new system of National Blueways.

十大赌博正规老平台协会和国家公园管理局已经开发了一个 切萨皮克步道保护策略 that defines a process for prioritizing conservation areas along the trail that are important to the visitor experience. 和NPS一起工作, the Conservancy is implementing this strategy along each segment of the Capt. John Smith Trail. Learn more 关于切萨皮克步道的规划.
