Expedition Chesapeake



Expedition Chesapeake, A Journey of Discovery is the first giant screen film to capture the stunning natural beauty of the largest estuary in North America. The film displays the incredible diversity found in the watershed with thousands of rivers and streams that feed the Chesapeake Bay with billions of gallons of fresh water each day. Water is a constant element in the film as it is the sustaining force for all forms of life in the watershed as well as the bay.   

Three-time Emmy Award-winning wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin is our expedition leader as we travel from the headwaters of the Susquehanna River in New York through the rugged Alleghany Mountains, and down to the sandy shores of uninhabited islands at the southern end of the Chesapeake Bay.  Along the way we meet dedicated scientists who have devoted their careers to studying, nurturing and sustaining beloved animal species in the region. 

The survival and resilience of iconic and intriguing animal species, including river otters, blue crab, osprey and hellbenders, illustrate the important role that each of us plays in the reclamation, conservation and future health of watersheds and estuaries wherever we live.
