Who We Are

Chesapeake Natives, Inc. is 501(c)(3) non-profit. We are virtually all volunteers. We’re enthusiastic promoters of local ecotype native plants. That is native plants that are derived only from the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

Our non-profit status means that we are exempt from federal income tax because our activities fall within the following purposes: charitable, religious, educational, scientific, literary, testing for public safety, fostering amateur sports competition, or preventing cruelty to children or animals.

Because we have this charity status, you are able to make a tax-deductible contribution to our organization in order to help us further our mission. Interested? Please click here.
