One function of the Chesapeake Chapter, U.S. Lighthouse Society is to educate and inform the general population about the lighthouses and Lightships of the Chesapeake Bay region. To that end, the Chesapeake Chapter:

  • Provides a special web page “Cheslights Kids” aimed at the future generation of lighthouse preservationists.
  • Created a Scout patch program to educate scouts on the history of the lighthouses in the Bay area and the importance of preserving them.
  • Provides speakers, who can speak on a variety of topics as they relate to the lighthouses and Lightships of the Chesapeake region, to any interested organization.
