The Chesapeake Bay Watershed Project is a citizen science initiative in which students investigate water quality issues on local and regional scales and collaborate with students across the Bay watershed to analyze data and take action. Chesapeake Bay FieldScope is a project of National Geographic's Education Programs in collaboration with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office. It is open and free for students and educators across the Chesapeake Bay watershed to join.

In response to feedback from educators across the Chesapeake Bay watershed states, many of the maps in FieldScope have been expanded to include the entire watershed states, including areas inside and outside of the Chesapeake watershed.
