As the first-ever giant screen film to explore the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed, Expedition Chesapeake will take you on a stunning visual journey from New York to Virginia with Emmy Award-winning expedition leader Jeff Corwin. You’ll meet animals and people calling this watershed home and learn more about the issues facing the United States’ largest estuary.

Over 17 million people live within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, and enjoy the diversity and beauty of its wildlife and environment. From giant hellbenders in shaded mountain streams to ospreys gliding high over the lower reaches of the Bay, Expedition Chesapeake will forever change the way you look at the watershed and species that call it home.

Developed in partnership with a team of world-class scientists, educators, and conservationists, this powerful and immersive film encourages audiences to appreciate the value of watersheds around the world. Expedition Chesapeake educates and inspires us to take the necessary steps to support long-term conservation efforts within our communities and fight for the future of the watershed our own backyard.
