New bay plates to be unveiled

December 10, 2003

Promising a bold and bright new look in full color, state officials plan to unveil the latest version of Maryland's popular "Treasure the Chesapeake" Bay license plate during a news conference today at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

The bay license plate program has generated more than $11 million for projects in every Maryland county and the city, including wetlands restoration, streamside forest buffers, oyster gardening and rain gardens.

The new plates - with a design that has been reserved for unveiling by the governor today - will replace the original design bearing a great blue heron and dark-green lettering that was released in 1990. The new plate will be available next month.
