The 2023 Edition of One Hundred Shores

Over the course of 2022, hundreds of different potential shorelines were researched in order to construct a narrative across the estuary which connected to ten different themes.  This year, we'll be honing in on just one of those themes.  


Landmarks, 2023

Landmarks are more than just monuments or geographical features – they are symbols that evoke strong emotions and powerful memories. For many, landmarks across the Chesapeake are our symbols of home. Crossing the bay bridge back from the beach, we think "won't be long now."

Or, just as likely, landmarks represent memories of our own journeys with family and friends. They become reminders of places across the bay - a marker of where we landed that 44" striper- and the people with whom we’ve shared experiences.

Landmarks across the Chesapeake are both man-made and natural wonders. But beyond resonating with us personally, these shorelines are symbols of our place in the watershed throughout time.
